    cool voodo. if i can just find a good book or dvd on a lighting diagram.it would make things alot better,alot of these books on portrait photography are getting poor reviews such as the lighting cook book.

    I haven't been here that long myself, but from what I can tell, Dew is the portrait queen around here. Watch for her stuff. There are a lot of really good photogs here who really know their stuff. Good luck and lets see some of those portraits.

    Have you tried to rotate the velvet backdrop?

    Maybe its not reflecting and just absorbing the light

    Just a Thought :D
