    thanks, and sure will,

    one strobe over my left shoulder, umbrulla (spelling?) and one bare faced strobe behind him and to the right.

    daniel colvin may have been adding some fill with a reflector, i can't remember. they were his strobes though, so thanks dan! - the guy in the photo is also named dan . . . strange.

    Fantastic environmental portrait, well done. I'll bet that the print looks amazing.

    One tiny thing that bothers me though...whatever is in his mouth, cigar or a pencil, looks like it's connected to the bright spot near the end of it, which I think is just a reflection off of the machine behind him.

    yeah mike its a cigar, and thanks!

    about the reflection connecting it i hadn't noticed . . . its not like that in the fiber prints, but thats a pretty good thing to watch for.
