Testing out my lights.

1600 watt with giant softbox on camera right, umbrella upper left, ringflash from the front, and a bare strobe with the cone behind her.

ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOSHOP WHATSOEVER

That is a strange....thing at the bottom.

I like the ring flash. I don't see it too often.

Nice work, you certainly have had a great transfer of 3D skills to photography. I did similar myself, but I'd started doing 3D, realised that I didn't know how to do it in real life, so spent the last few years being a photographer.

Can I ask what you trigger the flashes with? Do you have a wireless remote or use on-camera/ring flash to optically trigger the other flashes?

actually we had a lot of trouble triggering them all because i have two wireless receivers but no trasmitter (the guy i bought the lights from had already sold the transmitter...). So I had to use optical triggering.

At first I wired the big softbox on camera right because it was the only light that was facing all the others. Fail. Then I tried wiring the ringlight. Fail. Then I tried wiring umbrella on the camera left and some reason that triggered all of them. Win.

I can already see this being a huge problem. I really need to buy the transmitter.

Ahh OK.
See, I've got three Pocket Wizards. Expensive but VERY reliable, and work to a crazily long range.
I usually have one on the camera and the other two on the lights. Sometimes I only use two if the strobe will optically trigger the others (and I'm lazy).
But PW's are damn expensive (like USD$180 each), although you can get some pretty cheep e-bay remotes. Don't expect them to work well though.

I think if I had the chance I'd go for a set of Radio Poppers [link]

Really nice lighting and I love the combination of brown and turquoise. What's the pink thing peeking out of the bottom of the photo? It looks like a pig's ear... :o and it's ever so slightly distracting.

Great photo. Still think your photos have as much character as you renders.

For some reason, your ability to set up lights in the real world after working with them for so long in 3D modeling.... makes me sooo very happy. I think I commented about this before, in that one picture with the spilled mushroom, but again, major props to you man. I'm big into photography and all I know how to do is bounce flash, lol.

thats what convinced me to buy the photo lights to begin with. I'm not so good at working with natural light because i know what I want, and natural light doesn't let me move lights around.

It's actually quite funny to me how similar working with real lights are with 3d ones... because of the way I did it in 3d I always used physically based materials and algorithms. I'm still more limited with real life of course... because to changee the size of a softbox costs a lot of money, but overall its the same

Yeah, as mentioned before the ringflash is a little weird.

Otherwise, wow, this is a breathtakingly beautiful picture and Delya looks simply stunning in it.

The effect is amazing! Good work.

The behind-the-model lighting works especially well - in fact I like it so much you should patent it! lol. :)

The only downside is the ring flash reflected in the models eyes :( Maybe use another on-camera flash with either a softbox or bounce it off the floor/ceiling/etc or perhaps a diffuser. Maybe you could invent your own diffuser for the ring flash - some translucent plastic perhaps?

I actually like the rigflash look because not many people have them and it's more unique. Though to be honest it was just a 5 minute lighting test anyways (didn't bother setting up more than one lighting setup cause im lazzzzzzy)
