    I took hundreds of shots of my wife Marge yesterday. I'm excited to have my 20D back, so we set up a black background and had some fun. These are two of many that she and I liked. I'm going through another 142 now that I shot today.

    Awesome tones and great shadow detail matt. I might consider a closer crop on the right hand image.
    Excellent work as per usual.

    Cool shots. So what's it like having such a hot model right there at your beck and call? ;) :p

    Seriously, it's cool that you two can enjoy this together. It's a great fit.

    Thanks Robert, Jon, and Mark :)

    Mark, what can I say, it's really great having such a hot model right here at my beck and call ;)

    We had fun, and later we reversed roles and I helped her take some shots of me. I metered and she shot.

    You can see the shots she took at http://theduck808.deviantart.com

    Thanks again guys.

    Oooh! I really like "My Best Friend". She's hotter, though.

    Thanks M@ko and Dan :)

    I use cheap shop lights for lighting. I bought them at Walmart :p They are cliipped on old tripods. I don't have flashes or strobes. I'm saving up.

    Light is light, especially for b&w work. I prefer to work with minimal set-up. I've done a family gig with a home depot work light, which I was happy with. Just had to deal with the heat though. :)

    Did you diffuse the light with anything? Or was it softened in PS?
