Very interesting tags on this image - and now I've alerted everyone after me Wink Who says we don't read!
Nice photo of your guitar, like the comp and the lighting you've used.

nice comp with the guitar, I have one of those crystal bright monitors and I can see some areas where you havn't quite burnt out some of the lighter parts of the BG. That being said this is still a well shot and pleasing image.

Thanks very much. It was lit by a single soft box with just a little reflected back with the aid of some white correx.
Thanks for pointing that out Darren. I even stuck a very bright curve adjustment layer over it to highlight the brightest parts that needed painting over. Guess my monitor could do with an upgrade.

Dave I think my monitor is so bright that sometimes I'm not sure if it's a good thing lol! if I move the screen back too far it dissappears. It is a 17" Acer crystalbrite lcd, I have to say that photographs straight or manipulated look fantastic =0)

Hi Pooch, How's tricks?
The degree of suffering has got more to do with my skills as a musician than anything else.
The delightful Mrs C. bought the Yam' for me last year as a surprise and I have a feeling she's regretted it ever since.
If anything needs shoving through the Marshall it's me I'm guessing, anytime I try for some Robert Cray style pentatonic riffs.
Ta for looking,
Dave

Thank you Patrick. It took me ages to polish out all the grubby finger prints.

Very good Dave... Love the lighting. Must post one of my Blade R3 sometime. It won't be as clean as this though... not after 18years of regular gigging!! Grin

Thanks Mike.
There speaks a true musician - I'm more your tone deaf wannabe. People who own those Blades do tend to stick with them I gather.

Have a good weekend,
Dave
