Thanks to Christy Nichols for her color wash action!! Studio lighting, 1/100s, f6.3, ISO 800, 105mm

How oh how are you getting this look?!! This is the most awesome picture! What lens did you use, not your new one? This is your old lens? It is so clear and has so much depth!! The lighting looks like natural light!! Did you buy some actions online (what exactly is an action anyways?) I know it is something you can buy and download and it gives you different looks, but this is all I know. Please, please share!! I have been so in awe at the talent on this site, thank you so much for hooking me up to it. I have learned that my camera can take great pictures if I have a different lens, that is the next step. It actually was very difficult for me to put up my pictures, I only see the flaws and you my friend are accomplishing what I only hope to do. Great work on this one, I wish I could pick your brain more on it, and figure out exactly what I am missing in my technique!! One more thing, I notice you take a lot of pictures at ISO 800 and yet they turn out so clear without grain, how do you do that and why do you go so high? They all look fabulous at that setting! Talk to you soon!
