Ah, how we suffer for our art. :)
This took about 70 takes to get just right, complicated even more by the fact that I was using a remote control with a 2 second delay to trip the shutter. The timing was pretty complicated, and I was sore from jumping up and down all night.

Lit with both a studio light to the side, and an SB-600 in front.

Editting included layers, cloning out some junk in the room (Why didn't I just clean it first??), colour levels, shadow/highlight, UM, crop, resize, UM again, Save for Web.

Even though I'm paying for it today, this was fun to shoot!

Great pic...although i think a little curves a djustement to make things a little brighter might do it some good.

Is that a violin bass in the background? And is the fender jazz american or mexico?
