tried some Mark De Roo style motion blur and such, for a first time I don't think its that bad, I want to get a few shots that were taken specifically for the motion blur, I think it'd work better but let me know what you think...

i think lots of people are going to do the peter dual back lighting..

what was your key lighting? looks like you needed one more stop of power for the key..

---------------

also i wanted to draw attention to this photographers stream..

James Hayes (he is one of the country's top senior photographer that i follow) his use of lighting is simply amazing.. also he is a member here, though i don't see James posting too much, i wish he did though..very inspiring work.. (external link)


here is a great example of a single back lighted well balanced dreamy shot.. (i know peter did 2 lights, but you can do this with a single back light and not so intense and still get great results)

^ Love it... Models, background, lighting, and framing... Tack sharp, too... Good stuff, Phamster!!! If i may offer a suggestion... I think you're due for a new logo... The simple, highlighted, and beveled/embossed text doesn't illustrate the wonderful work you create, develop, and share to the masses...

Anyone want to create a logo for our boy, Phamster?!

:)

All I can say is wow!!!

This guy's images are amazing! It's like another Pham! I just checked out his photostream and am still just in awe...

P.S. And I agree, Pham needs a new logo that is just as amazing as his images!

We frequently chat back and forth. This guy does excellent work and is wonderful if you ever get a chance to pick his mind. To second Pham's approval and draw attention to him I couldn't agree more. I've been following him for a long time.
