Did a shoot of my better half Veronica yesterday. With all my tantrums and emotional ineptitude it's amazing that she's still with me! For that, and more, I love you baby!!!

I really wanted to experiment with shallow depth of field for a portrait for quite some time now. I also wanted to figure out a lighting scheme that would accentuate the feel of the shot. So I figured I would light it so that the subject would have a warmth while giving a coolness to the background.

And this is what I came up with.

The lighting setup is as follows: 1 580EXII 1/2 CTS gelled in medium softbox @ 1/64 above camera. Silver reflector below camera. Camera WB set @ 3500. I metered the scene with a Sekonic L358 & triggered the strobes with Pocket Wizard PWIIs.
