Taken by my brother after I set the camera up. "Point and shoot" is all I wanted him to do... Did a pretty good job at it so I can't complain. I got a lighting kit for Christmas so these were actually my first photos with the new kit! One light used on this one but I can't wait to use all three that came in the kit!

hmm I see a scowling dude's face, a raised hand, the hilt of something...then nothing. If there's a sword there, its blade has to be visible for this image to work.

I think the idea is great, if you could get some light onto the sword itself perhaps thru a snoot to light the blade you would have something great here.

Very intense. I would have liked to see the sword shimmer a bit more, right now it really just blends into the background and disappears.

I love dramatic lighting, but there has to be some sort of texture to the dark or it just looks oddly disembodied. Great intense stare
