Sharp, good lightened photos, with a bold, but really a very pleasant background colour that suits well to the subject.

#1 is especially good of the 3, and my favorite. Any chance you can take a shot of the light setup for us noob's who don't know what a macro light is from a slice of Velveeta?

I like #1 as well and think you picked some great colours for the background. Matches the gold colour on the viewfinder cover. Great stuff!

Tyler, yes the colour is nice but personally, I don't like the two-tone background. I also think that more light should have bveen shone on the bottom of the camera.

I used to have a Yahica TLR - the D, way back.
The first shot has the best angle.

Thanks for the comments guys.

For the guy who asked here is a lighting setup (sooo ghetto) and I'll throw in one more shot for good measure
