    Nice series, I really like "We fight to the last man"

    Did you use coloured lighting, or mess with the white balance?

    Hey, Artemis, I'm beginning to like your chess series better and better. What a nice theme and motif you've thought up in order to practise!

    HOW do you "mess with the white balance" on a digital camera? I really don't know.

    All I know is that I quite like the different outcome of your photos!

    A couplle things to say about this series, but first admit that I used to be a chess nut and that board is downright beautiful to begin with. I have a large wooden chess set my father made himself (board AND pieces in all!) that you've inspired me to attempt.

    "I do." Because it's the white queen with the clear king, it has a lot of meaning behind the picture. You could apply a lot of different meanings to it. If you were a bit closer to the line of pawns and if the line seemed endless, the shot would have been perfect. Also the lighting is just plain creative and downright cool.

    "We fight to the last man"
    This is an amazing shot except for that sticker. Could you add more white pieces? Perhaps "fallen" pieces that have been killed?

    All in all an awesome series. I think I'll go try one of my own soon :D

    Thanks for the comments guys...Ive had a bad day at work and you have all just put a smile on my face...I really didnt think the shots were that good, just like taking pics of chess pieces.

    Next I may attempt a follow up of this...maybe even a lord of the ringsy like story line of one porn...just something to make into a story.

    I was just curious of someone would like to help by photoshoping the "We fight to the last man" pic so that the sticker isnt there? thanks! :D

    Possible, and not overly difficult- use the clone (stamp) tool. However it's always best to just retake it without the sticker, as it guarentees a believeable outcome.
