What were you doing to get that expression ?

Nicely taken overall - I think a smaller font was needed or a bigger border for the title which for me would have been better placed central ?

I have found (and I'm no expert) that it is a good idea to have a distance of a couple of meters at least between model and backdrop if you can get it...
If you then stand back from the model and zoom in a little you will get a more effective blurring of the background.

My ' soft cover ' invention works well here too - especially for the size of the flash heads I have...
(Ha...! Sounds like a reference to the mod you did of me)

Best wishes - Caleb :o)

Thanks for everyones comments.
Caleb your right about the font I only relised it needed to be smaller when I uploaded it !Im changing my backdrop to a smaller one, the one I use is a whopping 2.4 by 4.4 meters ! It pings up and takes over my dining room ! Hopefully the next size down will be easier to iron and

Bye for now,

Like how the one piece body garment encompasses him - from his shoulders to the very tips of his monkey toes :o)

Ha! fantastic! I love it, I have 3 sons myself and have seen the photo you posted with your rabble Wink I like this because it's not the typical 'say cheese!' photo. These are miles better than any school photographer you've captured HIM Smile
