Pull her out a few feet from the backdrop too, to help minimize the shadow right behind her (also lets you light it separately, if you're going to try for that ultra modern, pure white bg). I actually like a bit of shadow behind them (and here), but I'm not sure what you are after. 

 

A little fill on the right would help overall - but it looks pretty damn good, especially given the constraints.

haha, the distance was a constraint as well. I had to shoot within a space of four feet (no joke!) --- this was shot at 28mm of a 135 equivalent IIRC, and I was up against the other wall. If I could place her further away from the wall, I would've, and shoot some Profoto D1s straight at the wall while I'm at it! hahaa...

 

I agree though, I liked how the shadows turned out. It keeps the subject grounded. I'm not really all that fond of the 'floating in space' feel. I wanted more fill as well but didn't have the stuff to do it with; I actually put in more fill in post --- which is why the right is more grainy than the left.

 

Overall, it didn't turn out too bad, considering what I was working with. I'm sure Annie Leibowitz or Blair Bunting would've done me one better, but I don't think they'd be willing to work in such harsh conditions! biggrin.gif

Fuji seems to have a unique look and color.  Fuji X-E1 may be in my future or perhaps a NEX-6, which is definitely much smaller.  

Which wide angle lens is in use here?

Keep in mind I am processing these (and each a little differently), but the fuji does have very nice color. If you use out of camera jpegs or the in-camera raw conversion the color is actually very accurate/natural. Lightroom is what I'm using, and it's a little bit off, but still better than I've usually gotten from canon images short of major tweaking. Silkypix, which comes with the camera, is a complete pain to get to match the stock image color, and I think that was incredibly stupid on Fuji's part.

 

Lens is an adapted voigtlander 12mm. I haven't yet bothered to adjust for the vignetting at the corners - it's not as dramatic as I've seen from the 15mm, and doesn't seem to have the strong color shift. In most of my shots I kind of like it as-is. Once the fuji 14mm comes out I will likely get and use that more than the 12mm, but I still really like the way the voigtlander looks/performs for some stuff (like shooting into the sun above).
