I like a lot great tones

Light setups are great!

Ian Cashman's picture

Yeah. It's window light.

Why ISO 800 and 1/160s speed? Surely a lower ISO and speed were preferable right? Or am I missing something?

Ian Cashman's picture

I think Peter shoots a lot of window light shots. I imagine this is why his ISO is high. It doesn't look flash lit.

It says "natural light" so of course you'd expect a slightly higher than usual ISO ... and if you think this is too high/grainy, then try shooting Tri-X at 800 ...

James Baird's picture

He probably allowing for the models natural movement. knowing he's not really going to effect quality under 1000

Matteo Manganiello's picture

Is it more the result of light setup or post-shoot editing?
