  2. Lighting is good and of course the DOF makes the shot. Well done.

    I would probably clone out the bright object at the top right of the frame.

    NIce picture. Nice and sharp, and I like the lighting and DOF too.

    I wish I thought to get a 9 footer, instead of the 8 footer I bought. That extra foot makes a world of difference, doesn't it?

    This is really the first time that I had conceived a shot and predetermined the lighting I wanted - right down to the use of a "pringles can" snoot! I shot some other stuff at the same time, but this shot is the one that I have been thinking about for a long time!

    "Pringles Can" - What a cool idea. Nice lighting.

    Do you have a shot of your setup?

    Pringles Can Snoot

    Alas, I am a compleat idiot when it comes time to remember grabbing a quick shot of the setup - I never remember to do that!:confused: 

    The pringles can snoot comes straight from the Strobist blog, I believe!
