Magnus Rising: Epic lighting.. by straightfromcamera Magnus Rising: Epic lighting.. by straightfromcamera
I love this shot. Lit with my SB800 from about 5 ft on 1/32 power

I attached it to my monopod with nikons Sc29. That little piece of equipment is the best!

I managed to get exactly what i wanted with the lighting from the left making a rembrandts triangle on the right, and some of the stage light still reflected

Nikkor 70-200/2.8VR

Great lighting! Is that from the lamp on the monopod that pretended to be stage light?
I love the shot. And, even the ISO speed is so high, the picture isn't noisy. Excellent job. :) Impressive, the most impressive.

do you manipulate your photos or are they just how they are?

straightfromcamera Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2008  Professional Photographer
most are just how they are. (99% of the time)

sometimes i will remove a little bit of background, but i shoot so that i dont have to, but if there is a corner of a face, or an amp, or a light, then i will remove it
