    How did you light it?

    Yes, WB was not customised...used the flash setting in the 350D to save time. I'm still experimenting however...

    Like the concept...and the careful alternate positioning of hands.

    Thanks, just the sort of feedback I was looking for...It would be easy to say (and get away) that this was my first time with this type of lighting. However, I'm on a steep learning curve here here so all feedback is important.

    Lighting setup was basic - A Sunpak PZ42X on my 350D pointed up, swivelled to bounce of the ceiling/wall to the left while a Vivitar 273 unit was placed out of sight at the base of the background wall to light the background. WB was set to the camera's own flash setting. The frame was overexposed to have a 'white-out' effect.

    Williie...Liked your modification..Frankly I felt my lighting was wrong...the softbox was at or below her face level, not pointing down from above...I know she was sitting right up against the backgrouind but she was comfortable there...yes, the background should have been black ideally but this bedsheet was all i could rustle up at short notice....I did calibrate white balance with a grey card. The exposure (confirmed by a Polaris Flash meter) was F8...
