    That’s a clever idea Stephen and I think it works well. I just wonder if it would be even stronger cropped to a rectangular format cutting off the top quarter a bit off the bottom? What post processing technique did you use as it looks quite gritty. By the way, to upload your pictures do not use the attachments button. Ensure the ‘Visual’ tab is selected and not the ‘Text’ tab. Then click on the far right hand icon in the edit menu that looks like a picture of a mountain. It loads a dialogue box for you to upload your image.

    Thought I’d better add a few of mine in appreciation of an excellent meeting. I’m sure everyone got good shots because Graham made it so easy and was so helpful and informative. I tried to get a little more intensity of expression from him. I really liked that he didn’t overcomplicate the set up as many do.

    I loved Wallace’s inventiveness but all are very good indeed!

     

    Above is a selection of mine.

    Well done everybody!  🙂

    Could you all please remember to send bigger versions (1600p)  to the Dropbox address I emailed out.

    This was a very successful evening – even with just one set up between about twenty! Thanks Graham!

    Actually. … I mean Stephen’s inventiveness …. and Wallace’s beautifully done hand modelling! 🙂

    Thanks for posting these. Graham first lighting setup was with just one light to his left which gives a dark shadow on the right of his face. While it creates a moody atmosphere and drama I would have liked to see a bit more detail in the shadow, especially in this eye. I think he set it up like that to show us the effect.

    You know me Pete … I like a bit of drama in a photograph … 🙂 I do have images with both eyes lit – but these had more impact for me.

    What I like about these images are variety. I love the moodiness and story they have in them. I don’t mind one side is dark, it adds to the impact of the image.
