Black and white portraits

It was a pleasure to have my sister-in-law, Jane stopping with us the last couple of weeks. While she was here I took a few portrait shots.  The photos I gave to Jane were all colour shots but here I thought I’d share a few black and white versions.  I do like a black and white portrait.

All these pictures were taken with the Fuji X-T1 with the 50-140mm lens.  Lighting was from a Nikon SB-900 flashgun which was fired into an octo-softbox.  For some of the shots a second flash was used either as a hair light or to provide a bit of fill light from below by bouncing it off a tiled floor.
