Again, feel free to CC :)

Settings: ISO 100, f/8 1/25s (This was an assignment for a studio class, settings were required to be what I had)

Lighting: Strobe with large softbox on camera right about 2 feet from subject and about 18" off the ground.

His face may be a little bright and the shadow being as dark as it is bugs me a little...

Looks right on the money both technically and subject wise! Really great...

(If I were to pick nits, I'd go in and clean up the floor just a little)

lol he really does know how to handle his guitar :) My dad has played guitar for about 40 years and is LOVING teaching my son how to play :) My son can stand up and handle his guitar, sit and handle it. His fingers aren't quite long enough to reach over the strings and play chords, but he LOVES playing his guitar and making up songs for everyone :)

Very cute! Definitely go into the family album!.

For the shutter speed, do you mean 1/250s? With him hovering above the floor, 1/25s would be hard to capture it.

OMG, too cute. Great shot. Showing motion, which you did a good job freezing.

Nope... The shutter speed was 1/25 :) the flash is what froze his motion and kept me from getting motion blur :) This was also handheld - no tripod :)

Great capture!

For the shadow (in Photoshop): Open a blank layer and change blend mode to Lighten.
Use a soft brush at 10% brush opacity. Sample the lighter floor near the shadow and
paint with that hue over the shadow. (You can mask out the feet and legs to protect
them from being lightened).

For the face: Open any adjustment layer (curves, hue/sat, levels, etc.). Change blend
mode to Multiply. This will darken everything. Invert the mask (Ctrl+i) to hide the
darkening effect. Paint with white -- soft brush, 10% brush opacity -- on the face to
darken a little (more or less than shown here, according to what you prefer).
