Oooo! Nice!
I really like 2 and 3!!!
Is it window light?
And what's the surface (both black and white) you put them on? And what do you use for your background?

I find they are all rather stunning. I really like the colors of #4 best.

The setup is a 580exII with a shoot-through umbrella, 42" zip disc reflector with a white cover (these are generally arranged left and right respectively, though for the reflection shots I'll move the reflector more above the subject). The background for the black ones is black velvet and white is white foamcore.

For the reflective surfaces, I use a thin piece of acrylic (Plexiglass) on either the black velvet or the foam core. The piece was probably $1.99 at the hobby store.

I have a picture of the setup but I haven't taken it off the wife's camera yet.
