    I get a little intense when I play Call of Duty 4 on xbox live.

    I had to do this for my photography class. Unedited besides some adjustments in Adobe Raw and level adjustments in PS.

    Lighting
    Bare at 3/4 to right.
    Soft box at 1/2 in front.
    430ex at 1/16 bounced off wall to left.

    C&C please!

    Pretty good, although the highlights from the main light are blown.

    Other than the goofy looking model... J/K Seriouslly, other than the blown highlights, it looks good. What'd you use for a main light source?

    nevermind I just read the post again... I think I would have done something to diffuse the bare. That's just me though. Maybe even if it were just something slight like some white silk over the bare, it would have made a difference.

    Bahaha, thanks. I used an Interfit 150ex bare for the main light. The softbox was also on an Interfit 150ex.
