JD............ yes, natural window light from her right..............

There is a dark wood wardrope behind her, that when I PP the image goes black............. can't afford studio lights.......... anyway, it's hard enough trying to work out natural light! :eek: :eek: :eek:

Well you're doing an excellent job with natural light...interesting info about the dark wood behind the subject and how it turns black when you PP...for this type of effect, I would have thought you spent most of your PP time tracing around the subject zoomed at 500% with the lasso tool haha! That is typically how I achieve a similar desired effect...it takes forever though!

Thanks for sharing all this info!

JD........... I very rarely, if ever, have to do any PP on the background directly, shooting in this room............. that's why I use it........... all the other rooms in my house have light walls............! :biggrin:

And I admire your 500% patience/lasso discipline! :eek:
