    My first attempts at cemetery photo... i don't particularily like these shots and they are 6 out of 217 so the rest is pretty pathetic, but for your viewing pleasure, here they are.
    yeah, all b&w and and a smashing majority of angels :)

    Chiller, if you see this, I :hail: to you and any of your advice is more than welcome.

    #6 is very nice!

    It looks like you had some very tough light to work with? Your subjects and compo are good...maybe try and go back with some better lighting.

    thanks guys! :mrgreen:

    Wood: yeah, the light sucked. the sun was too awfully bright, but i tried using it for the silhouettes. the place is about 20mins from my school so i'm thinking of going back after class someday to catch the sunset :D

    Good work! I like the directional lighting. Consider bringing a huge piece of foamcore to open the shadows.

    Alex...these are beautiful. Awesome captures. 1 and 6 really standout for me. I would love to see the first one in person.
    If ya can,try Craigs suggestion . It will help with your lighting. I know most of the cemeteries here in Toronto would frown on bringing a large piece of board there, but you might be able to get away with it there.
    Excellent job on the comp too. I keep going back to look at the last shot. Very cool.

    OH NO now you are going to get the Cemetery Shooting Bug and it will forever haunt, take it from someone who knows!

    After shooting many a Cemetery, I now only shoot them on cloudy days or very early in the morning or late in the day if I can help it. Also I don't know if you know this or not, but most older Christian Cemteries are situated so the head stones face East (at least in North America and Europe) so that the people burried there face the rising sun, and the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem. This tradition however has not been heavily practiced over the last 100 years or so
