Did I tell you I LOVE my DP1? :D (I don’t love everything about it, but I do forgive when playing with the RAW). These images are all taken with one light. One big softbox with a not well known branded flash so it’s probably a setup that everyone could afford. These images are all available as full size for pixel-peepers out there They are as sharp as they look all the way down to 100% and will look terribly good printed. Better so of printed big! Please do try! :)  (go to my flickr account for more images from the same series).

Workflow is terribly simple. Sigma Photo Pro, save as TIFF 16, post process using Aperture or Lightroom. I did use Lightroom 2 only for the BW below.

Here you can see how big the softbox is, and what the setup looks like. I never moved the light (or at least very little).

    Hey, Carl. Very nice to see your friends here, after they are permitted to be. I got your other note – completely appreciate the expressions of each of these young persons, that’s what I was really trying to say. I get side-tracked sometimes ;).

    I know you and others like the equipment that makes these subtle pictures possible, and that softbox is definitely worthwhile.

    Maybe you don’t need to hear it, but the ‘soft’ way you and it coax personalities to show, or shine, is very good. To be different – it is very much there, I think in the way parents as well as child really value it, in their own quiet times.

    Best, Carl, and to your young student-friends,
