    Feedback wanted: Salve Regina (indoors, no electricity)

    First 2 shots... kind of boring (to me anyway) Nothing exciting going on, photos are slightly on the flat side...I DO like #3 though! I like the light peeking through the open a feeling of movement and anticipation! #4, would be much better perspective if you had shot it straight...

    I got creative with smoke :-)

    Well if I used gels then it would definitely create a monotone color and make it more difficult to have a variety of colors to create on the smoke, if I used more than one light then it would kind of blow out the photo...there should only be one light source being used to create the hard edge...

    The Chronicles of Lil' Tiger ~ Part 1

    I for one have very much enjoyed reading about lil tigers chronicles!! This seems to be working for LiL keep it up. Just because she is earning her tips and color on her belt doesnt mean she isnt worthy of a black belt in 4-5 years. I have a kid in my school Anthony, who has an...

    As far as I know TKD doesnt us this device, and with as much training as I do at the school I dont think I would have enough energy or time to use this device at home, I sure dont have anywhere to install it...
