Lighting is not my forte'.

I could have done something that I'm good at and entered that... and no one would have known until after voting.

But, I'd know. So, here is my attempt at learning.

I really wanted the shadows to be sharp and crisp. I don't think I own a light that will do that. I tried the lights that I have, but they spread the light out way too much. So, I used natural light from a window and adjusted the shutters and opened/closed the shutters to get it the best that I could.

I'm happy... I learned something... and there we are.

Apparently, I'm also trying out new uneven spacing of objects. But, that was not my intent. *rolleyes*

ETA during voting: I respectfully disagree with the anonymous commenter (It's probably Anita, I think. She's the only one I know who spells "should've" as "should of", but I digress, although it does make phonetic but no contractional sense.) I think the shadows are what this image is all about. Or what I was trying to make it be all about.

If I'd used a softbox, the light would have been everywhere, right? No cool shadows?

I'm so lost at lighting. Darnsies.

Your input, please.
