    Every day that I've not been at work for weeks now has been dull, not always raining but very dull, you know, f2.8 or wider weather. So in desperation, I bought some cheap continuous lights and soft boxes off Amazon and some card backgrounds, and set up a mini-studio of sorts in my workshop. There were two 85w lights in soft boxes each at 45 degrees from the subject. Camera is D500, Sigma 105mm lens, f2.8 1/320 sec, ISO was auto and crept up to 2200. That tells me the lights weren't strong enough, maybe I could have managed without the soft boxes. Anyway, I'd be interested in any comments please:

    You have a surprisingly deep DOF here, considering the f/2.8. That's a good thing. The lighting angles work good, as does the card b/g, so other than maybe a bit brighter light, the overall is working fine.

    Thanks Roger. It's a genre I want to do more of, given the dull weather!
