    hi :) I've been shooting all the time lately so I have tons of pictures on my PC. Here I'll post only a few from photo session which I attended with local photogs society.

    This one was taken in a very old, German water power station (wasserkraftwerk :p)

    this one too:

    this one was taken in the university, where we set up a small studio

    the girl is not a pro model but she was quite good at posing

    it was a great time for me because many pros were there too and I had a chance to watch what they were doing, how they settled the light and blend screens and so on...

    :)

    When have you been to a German Wasserkraftwerk? And where was it?

    Interesting opportunity you have. I always only have the countryside around me... :(

    But not too long from now...! Essex! :D Yay! :D

    Ah mentos, that's cool. I wasn't implying it was PS'ed just commenting on the monochrome look of the ground. :D I like it a lot.

    Now THAT is what I like about the first photo. Would you think that I couldn't nail what it was? The monocrome looking background!
    And yes, Mentos, it shows that this is no PS work but that the floor was this grey.
    I so like how his sweatshirt contrasts with this. Plus this very grey and this very red go very well together.
    Thanks for telling me what I was (secretly, too secretly for myself even) thinking, JonK.

    and what do you think about the angle in the last one? Does it work here or not? Friends are divided... some of them tell me that it looks fine here, some of them claim that she looks as if she was falling down... what do you think?
