Welcome. I'm a photographer from Ashland, Ky., whose day job is creative services manager for an area hospital. Thought I'd create this to share some thoughts and photos. Hope you enjoy.

Just for Fun
Having a studio setup right there in the office provides a lot of good opportunities for goofy photos of co-workers, especially when testing lighting setups. These shots usually don't see the light of day, but for a goofy shot, I really liked the lighting on this one. Setup is two gridded 24" soft boxes, one just above to camera left as the main and a second slightly behind the subject as a rim light. There's a bounce card directly in front of and below camera to throw a little fill, and a blue-gelled backdrop light behind the subject.
The main box is in close, which provides the good light falloff allowing the arms and lower body to go dark.
