hey bud :)
i did some reading a while back and it stated that you can get a sharper image using a tripod then using hand held. Ive also seen a few videos / tutorials on youtube that stated the same thing. Plus shooting on a tripod, my hands are more free (and I dont have to hold the lens and body in my hands all the time)

Camera shake really isn't an issue with flash but It does make sense not having to hold the camera.

I enjoyed the video...very informative, and I love it when folks show the diagram describing the lighting and model placement!!

One thing that struck me, and is just constructive criticism (coming from a total noob mind you), is that the B&W pic you showed, to me...seemed to have an almost plastic, unrealistic look...and you then mentioned you'd used a bit of skin softener.

I wonder what that shot would look like with less skin softening?  Maybe do a version with a bit less and post them side by side on this thread?

Anyway, that was the only thing that caught my eye as a little odd looking..but again, enjoy the video and showing the shoot over all!!

thanks for the feedback champ :)
once i get home from work, ill post up a before and after. Now that you say it, i think your probably right (and i hate the look of plastic), but when i look at the full res version, it does show a little skin texture.

But thanks again for the feedback, and i will post up the pics :)
