    Took these the other day. I think they came out kinda nice. I used one flash off camera for each. CC apreciated.

    The second one is confusing. Is there a speedlite in her vagina? You're quite the pioneer.

    I don't know where you think a vagina is...but the light is coming from the direction of her feet.

    I really don't like this 2nd photo, the light coming from under her face...really isn't doing her any favors. I guess this isn't an attempt at glamour photography...but still...I'm not a fan of the monster lighting here.

    I gonna be honest, the shadows on the face in the second one are bad, really bad.

    Im guessing you didnt have a lightstand and thats why the flash is low in all of them? If so i would definetly get one and also some kind of diffuser like an umbrella or soft box.

    your right no light stand or anything.
    So im guessing an umbrella would be a good investment.

    I wasnt realy going for a glamour style. I was more trying to capture the atmosphere of the area, which was grungy and when it started getting dark just a bit creepy.
