Ni

I wasn't quite sure what to do here, but I set up the lights and Ni modeled well here and made it special. I wanted to use my Canon because I've been using my Nikon 95% of the time these days, and the Canon has better resolution (12mp vs. 6mp) for making prints. The only problem is that the Canon's flash sync speed limits me to 1/200th with flashes. I can push it to 1/250th but I get a black bar on the bottom (from the shutter's second curtain not clearing the sensor space in time). I usually just crop that out, but Ni made good use of the whole frame on this one and I couldn't bare to crop it. Instead, I added another black bar to the other side of the frame to make it symmetrical. So I guess some of the choices for this image weren't really planned by me, but I like the end result anyway.
