Hi all!
Here's a pic from one of the last photo shoot I did.
I'm not a pro, as of now it's just an expensive hobby, but if you'd like to know more about how the picture was made, you can jump over to my blog, and read up on lighting set up, and the Photoshop process.

Aaaaawesome! I read through your blog post on it (ok... I didn't quite read all the way to the end) and I feel like blocking the flash completely from the backdrop would have saved you the cutting-out process and given you the same perfect black behind them?

I'll try and do some blocking next time, there's so many things to remember to do, I always forget something:o
In this instance I have a light in the front left of frame lighting the subjects, which is contaminating my background, and not enough distance between them and the background to let the light fall off.
I definitely need to do some blocking action on the second light, to improve the process.

Thanks for taking a look and commenting!
