    my gf made a kickass Jack o lantern tonight, before she left i took some pics of it.

    no product shot or anything just held the 580ex in my left hand and foam core on the right side.

    But she has got sooo much patience. I made a silly one. no where near as badass...

    Lighting doesn't seem like anything special, but I really like the pumpkins.

    it wasnt, but if i would have hit it with direct lighting the depth would have been lost.

    flash on camera...

    oh no dont worry, i didnt take it offensively at all. :) didnt really setup anything just had teh camera there, and the white foam core was our cutting table. lol

    but i know what you mean, maybe tomorrow i will take real pics of it, the glare on teh front is kinda pissing me off.
