    Here are the hard and soft lighting shots of this guy from Gears or War. Tips or tricks on how to improve these images? Do these images need more props to make these look more appealing?

    Rotate the camera 90° along the lens axis.

    I agree with Sparky.. shoot portrait mode..

    And why would you want light flare? It usually reduces image quality.. unless done properly. And since you are having to ask how to do it, I don't think you will get anything but reduced IQ!

    Oh.. and to improve the image.. get rid of the wrinkled background....

    I don't want to use Photoshop or other photo editing programs. This is an experimental shot for a class. The light flare would be nice affect but don't know to improve it.

    Put a UV filter or two in front of the lens.

    Experiment with various apertures (ND filters may help).

    I put in two VU filters, and it is much better than before. Thanks. $_MG_3437.JPG
