      Thanks, I find this site always makes me want to push what I can do to the limits. Some times it works, some times it doesn't. Really glad to be here amongst all these amazing people :)

    Great lighting & set up mate. Just a bit distracting on the tip of the sword. I really like the angle & the composition Robert

      Cheer mate, still got a long way to go to get comfortable with using the flash units but I'll get there, lol ;)

    This one is a great shot. Very nice setup and beautiful costume. But I find the exposure to be a bit harsh.

      Cheers :)
      I did a set of about 9 shots for Sam playing with the sword but this was my favourite, had to use 3 flash units to get the lighting right, one either side of Sam to light her and one pointing down above the camera to light the tip of the sword.

      I always like the stories behind shots, gives you an insight to how an artist works :D

      Thanks mate, I know we all see everything differently. I just love to know how shots are set up and taken too, I find it's great for giving you ideas to try and how to view things from a different perspective :)

      Your not kidding, can't believe how much I've learned in the few months of being on Shadowness. It's great to find somewhere that can inspire and push you like this.
