Not bad for the equipment used :)

I think I'd add a bit of vignetting to darken the guy in the BG and make him less of a distraction.

thanks for the input...here's a link to the 1200 X 1600 image...apparently, Picasa will only allow you to view the original full-size image if you download it:

Nice capture, John...for any equipment. It looks like you have a good handle on dragging the shutter and balancing the flash already.

thanks...I think my biggest issue with this camera is going to be focusing...I may be expecting too much, so I think taking a step back and expecting less will actually result in more, if that makes sense LOL

thanks for the edit!

here's one before the set...I am very interested in musical instruments and equipment and I wanted to capture Jerry's tenor and alto, as they are an iconic and integral part of who he is:

a more standard shot...available light was very low, so even adjusting settings was a bit tricky, as the camera is new and I am not familiar with it...I'll continue to work on that
