    The exposure is spot on, it looks great. I like the backdrop.
    What was your setup?

    right, it just looked a little soft due to the skin smoothing

    I believe he means the lack of shadows produces a lack of dimension => flat

    ohh ok
    well the main reason their is no shadows is because thats not a real backdrop.
    i took that like almost in the kitchen in my house and downloaded a backdrop pack off deviant art and photoshopped it in.
    lol i thought somebody would have noticed by now or somethinn
