    I just got my new light sets in, and have no model. I want to practice and I resorted to using a bleach bottle on a trashcan. :er: I did several using myself, but that becomes so tedious. What do you do when you have no model and want to practice?

    Hahhahaha...I live in a forest. Not too many people around. Perhaps I could bribe one of the black bear?

    Invite people over for a weekend, quietly hide their car keys, and then corner them after a nice breakfast?

    I know someone who uses mannequins. In fact, she's got a whole series on mannequins. It's actually pretty good, if somewhat... freaky... at times...

    Heck, it would be ample payment for all the trashcans they've destroyed... :mrgreen:

    I didn't think of mannequins! Maybe get one of those makeup/hair heads that beauty schools use!

    Though I don't have any studio lights, I for once liked to play around with some desk lights, and I had to ask "Liesel" to be my model:
