SP friday .jpg

Just got volume 2 (new Scott Kelby Book)
He has many recipes for getting that good shot!
I was trying a colored gel over the back light.
I also tried shooting from an angle about 90 degrees from the main light.

Canon EOS 40D
1/250s f/11.0 at 35.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original
