Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Today, I received my "Studio Kit", and wanted to give it a test shot.

This was taken in my living room with my black backdrop, and one Vivitar 285HV firing directly into a Large Softbox (camera right at 1/16th power).

It was shot using my Tokina 12-24mm (at 17mm?) with his fist really close to my lens, and I think it came out nice! I did a quick 3-step "secret sauce" edit, and BAM!!!

Although I am mainly an "on-location" shooter, I am really thinking of getting into the "Studio" world, but I'll be adding my own you can see.

This is my younger brother, and he actually is an amateur boxer, so there is a bit of truth to the picture ;-)

If all goes well with this studio plan, I will be opening my first portrait studio in June of 09!!!!

Tomorrow, I pick up my studio lights!!!

I hope that works out well too!!

Anyway, as always, I really do hope you like my shot!!

    Thanks so much you guys!!!
    I got my studio lights today, but one soft-box set was incomplete (D'oh!!!), so I will have to wait until Monday to really start getting into it.
    Either way, it should be fun!!!
    I will post as I grow!!
