Surapon,
A great lesson!
The guide could be used in a lot of other occasions where the background is dark and the subject is lit.
Thanks for sharing your notes.  This time you're the teacher!

Dear Surapon,
You're most humble.  I saw your photos and they are high quality.
Looks like you'll have a great session of photography, wish I could join you, but I'm maybe 4 hours from you in VA.
Maybe you can share some result of your lessons soon.
(PS., I'm coming to Graham for a one day technical training.)
