Great lighting!

I love the strip light effect you've got there with your flash attachments. Keep it up Tyler and let that strobist bug run wild!

Your choice of colour " Red" is quite lifting for viewers psychologically.

Quite dramatic

Thanks Chris! Those strips are intended for using with macro shots, but they work great when you use two for portraits.

Nice man. I'm still in high school(sophomore), but a big state fan. My mom went there as well. I like in Wake Forest so not far from you. Know that song by heart as well

Thanks Roentarre!! I didn't even think about the color choice. Just happened to be wearing a red shirt at the time!

Thanks! You really should! It's really quite fun and a great skill to learn.
