    the trick is a light behind you and above you, with no light infront of you

    Why is that toy on your head?
    Shadowing help adds depth to a 2 dimensional image.

    Proper lighting in a photo is not cheating. It's just showing what you have.

    Natural light is the best IMO.

    And while you use the ideal lighting, if taking progress shots, try to keep the lighting consistent.

    sure... to bad when other people see you they aren't going to see you in lighting that makes you look that good.

    my point being, you are going to look way better with lighting/shadows than you do without.
