Hi allnot a real problem but help please.  From time to time I have to take head shots for theatre companies.  The problem I would like to solve is taking photos of old ladies.  I want to be able to photos of older ladies insides and I am never sure how to set up the speedlites to show them is the best light. Men are easier as wrinkles or age lines on a man seem to give them more character, whereas women always want to look younger.  Someone must have a setup that will show women in the best light.

  • Bounce problems
    Hi all, I have problems with bounce flash. I’m in Australia and I shot the head shots for a small local theatre company. The head shots are generally B & W and a black background is used. They are just head shots.
    I have found that the bounce of camera is not really working for me.  I’m finding I’m having to go up to 1600 or higher ISO, at 1/60 because of the background, then adjust in photoshop as a DNG file.  I have to adj in Camera Raw: exposure by + 1.45, brightness by +64 and Clarity by +27.  Flash was on camera set on TTL facing forward with head turned up right. The attached images show the setup and the result. The images were saved as raw files and only have been changed to jpeg to post. The image of the set up show that the main wall and celling is white and therefore should be good for bounce, but not in this case. I had to do a lot of post work.
    I would like to get it correct in Camera. On this occasion I was using a Sony A6000 with face rec
