I've been using my Canon 580, 550 and 420 flashes as my "extremely portable" lights. A small bag that holds stands, umbrellas and lights is all I need to carry with me.

I recently purchased new studio lights. I went with the VersaLight and MobiLight strobes from JTL. They are both essentially the same thing, but the MobiLight comes with a battery pack that lets me take it out where there are no electrical outlets available. They are much bigger than my Canon flashes, but they put out a lot more light too. So now I have two solutions... an ultra portable and a semi-portable. :-)

Just food for thought.

I tried a bit of the PP...let me know how it looks

This should be a great image to work with - the color contrast is already in place.

I'll have a go at it, but I don't know squat about photoshop. Interested to see what you folks come up with.

Taken at the Shihlin night market in Taipei, ISO500, 1/250 or so.

edit: ummm here is the hi-res version, dunno if you can d/l that file from my portfolio.

OK this is maybe 2.5 min of PS work - I'm literally nodding off at the keyboard. I don't quite think I've got it.

Convert image to 16-bit TIFF, open in photomatix pro, create tone-mapped version, adjusting the sliders until it looks about right. Export to PS7, burn in the foreground a little, and make a jpg for display. That's it :-)

From the large original, not that much difference really. Did some local burn/dodge too.

I think he performed a bit more post than I did on this shot to get him them there. Probably had better initial shot to work with as well. lol To me this always had a bit of a cartoon look although I minimized it. I actually got that effect by using the unsharp mask. I didn't apply it as heavy as I could of because I was shooting for a bit less of the effect. I will post the original later when I get home to do so. Looking at Joey L work inspired me to try and recreate that sort of effect.

I really like his work, very inpiring.

I decided to give it a try as I like the look, certainly worth pursuing if you like this sort of thing. I really have no idea what I was doing though, so please don't ask. I tried to post steps with the pic for anyone that is interested. Also, one step I forgot was that somewhere in there I did add a diffuse glow layer and blend it in.

My shot at it with the Highlight/Sahdow adjustment. A bit of Guassian Blur on a Darken layer for outlining.

I wonder how many of these are gonna show up in this month's free study ? :-)

I think that worked well. I like that shot alot. Too bad you don't rmember exactly how you did it, because that would be cool to know!

A very quick go at it...
sorry for the large image, I'm not a member at the moment!

I'm probably just old and conservartive, but I actually like this original better than all the "new and improved versions" :)

That is awsome. I need that software. I think it is a must have.

What kind of image was that? Obviously it's not a multiple exposure.

I used raw shooter to expose 2 versions of it. One overxposed. One under exposed.
