comment How to precisely focus in self-portraiture with very wide aperture?
Matt's definitely right about the cable release as well. I had kind of assumed thats what was being used, but if not, make sure you are!

comment What is butterfly lighting, and when do I use it?
I don't think that image is legal to use here...

comment What is clamshell lighting, and when should it be used?
I was going to try to catch you in chat and asked you about this, because Clamshell and Butterfly sounded so similar... Good stuff

comment What are the dangers of doing photography on a “Work for Hire” contract?
(I'm an economist by education) Just because the market doesn't feel large, doesn't mean additional competition wouldn't effect your price. But, the current state of affairs is a point taken.

Technically, if everybody did that it would drive the prices of work-for-hire gigs down in the long run - so be glad everybody doesn't!

Sounds like she ended up with a diamond ring and Nike stock in the end...not the worst deal...

I'm just really going to be surprised if a surrogate of any kind will work for this. At 50mm, f 2.2 (his listed f-stop) and about 4 feet away (a head shot), you've only got a DoF around 2 inches. Thats a very narrow gap to hit. That said, I may try this out just to see.

Thats pretty nearly impossible at that shallow of depth of focus - if you tilt your head too much one way or the other, you'll be out of focus (I tried that first). Not having anybody else around means you don't know if you're EXACTLY where the object was.

@kacalapy - The flash is mounted on the camera, but pointed up into the ceiling.

Good call - really it's just anything to shift that reflection angle.

I'd not think to recommend a polarizer for indoor candid shots - it'd be very difficult to get right in time and you'll lose a few stops of light.
