    So the wife went to sleep and the animals won't hold still. I figured the next best thing was to set up the wireless shutter release.

    Shots were taken with off camera flash either left or right + homemade beauty dish type thingy. The photoshop effect was just for fun and to give a cohesive look to all the shots.

    So here is the end result: me.... 15 frames of oddity.

    Thanks for the replies. Glad you thought they were fun/entertaining, I had fun taking them. This was my first try with portrait type lighting and I'm pretty happy with the results.

    Next time I'll try to remember to include my best "Jerry Ghionis" Face. (You probably won't get that one unless you look at the WPPI advertisements in photo magazines.)

    Next one to try is :sexywink: - to your wife. ;)

    Cheers, though; a great idea, and a montage wouldn't be bad either.

    This series reminds me of the photo strips that drop from the photo booths found at amusement parks.

    Cool series.

    Like the editing

    Flash look a bit hot on about half of them

    Holding just a white piece of copy paper on the side of your face opposite the flash would help loads to fill in some shadows and give it that multi light source look if you wanted that
