Or is it an everyday household iron? :)

I just got my cybersyncs and since my gf won't let me use her as a model to practice on, I used the iron. haha! I just had it set on a black t-shirt, set the camera to basically black out the background and just light the iron. Using a 580EX on one side and 430EX on the other. When I looked at it, I thought it looked like a starship, so I just deleted the black background and threw it in front of a picture of the galaxy.

Hi CanonLaw,

Pretty cool. Good exposure, controlled highlights. Nicely done.

Thanks.
The one thing I would have liked to eliminate is the shadow going down the middle, but I didn't have enough room to position the lights so they would hit the middle all the way.

I think the shadow gives it character. Shadow adds contrast, which creates depth and dimension.

That is a very creative use of an iron, though I must say even in the iron picture it does not look like any iron I have ever used.

Now, if someone who is better at photoshop that me could tell me how to create an engine trail, like an afterburner or something, that would be pretty slick.
