    Nicely done.

    On the last one, is that a shadow or a reflection?

    Thanks Mike!

    It's a reflection.. I bought some glossy tile board at home depot, it's meant to be used in bathrooms and showers, bit it makes for a perfect floor. It's much easier to blow it out with less light and it makes nice reflections! :)

    I really like the last one. The reflection adds just a bit of dimension.

    Thanks everyone!

    I should have taken a setup shot so you can see.. It's pretty simple. White bedsheet on the wall, white tile board on the floor, 2 Vivitar 285HV's aimed at the background to blow it out, and 1 Vivitar 285HV in a shoot-through umbrella just to the right of the camera for the subject. The trick is to block the background flashes from hitting the lens, and don't put more light on the background than needed since it will cause lens flare.
