Nice job, the tiny bit of detail adds to the image nicely.

Thanks Greg!! :)

The shot with the tiny details was not intentional actually; I was aiming for a full silhouette then this resulted since I didn't totally control the flash bouncing off the ceiling, but overall, I think this "accidental" shot with the details is more interesting than a full silhouette :lol:

I even followed your tip on telling your models (in this case, me) to sit on the edge of the seat to have better posture. :)

I agree! The added detail short of the full silhouette turned out really nice. Maybe theres a lesson here. It would be worth while to know exactly how to duplicate those results, along with accomplishing your origanal vision. maybe that shot could be one of you "go to's" when shooting future clients.
