    the first is good, i dislike the rest. but i like the first enough that i would modify the light some and get some light on your face and i think it would be awesome

    A light from behind to seperate you from the background would add a lot I think. Good idea though. :)

    You mean like a back/rimlight to define my arms/shoulders on #4/#5? I was trying to let my torso blend into the ground, but now that you mention it I really want to try that. :)

    Exactly what I mean. Just make sure to really isolate the light so none spills onto the background. Just stick the strobe off to the side and behind.

    I like #1 and #4. I think it would be sweet for #4 if you could get another light source, possibly a narrow beam light, to illuminate half of your face. Or try it out in Photoshop. Cool idea man!
