I'm no pro, but love to take portraits. My skills are rudimentary when it comes to post processing (so no retouching of skin) and not the best at setting things up. I have a very nice Sekonic light meter, but have never used it so my flash shots are guesses on the settings. All shot with the Canon 5D Mark III, EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, and Flashpoint Streaklight 360ws (3 are no flash). I no longer have any Canon speedlites. With all that in mind, please be gentle The wife is the 55 year old short woman.
