    I made this shot yesterday for an ad in a trade magazine. I'm sure you know the large, black areas are for ad copy.

    As always, I'd love to hear any concerns or critiques.

    Thanks!

    I really like this shot. The rim of light around him really works well.

    To me, this shot seems to be about the man and the product comes second. If that's the intent, then that's great.
    If, however, the shot is supposed to be more about the product and the inventor is supposed to be secondary, then I think the product should be brighter than it is.

    You nailed it. I'm told he's known in the industry.

    Thanks, Mike.

    This is how it was used in the ad.
