    Great image. What do you use to write the date/info on the rebate area?

    Thanks guys!

    Andrew, get your hands off my face man!)

    cp_photo, I'm using a 0.1 black drawing pen.
    The brand is called Simbalion and is supposedly "archival quality, acid free, waterproof, pigment ink". That's what it says on it anyway.
    It's just the brand that my local office supply store carries which has the thinnest tip and dries quickly on film. Have been using it for years and I'm happy with it.

    Nice. Have you considered putting a reflector or a fill light on the shadow side?

    Now there's a trick, how do you take a selfie with an 8x10 without acquiring a hernia?

    Seezee, most of my work has been with natural/existing light. I'm only starting to explore the world of artificial lighting.
    (I was taught studio lighting back in school some 20 years ago, but learning something for a class and *actually knowing* something are not the same thing!)

    Andrew, hm, use a tripod? (actually two, because of the bellows extension required).
    The tricky part is focusing, when the dof for a shot like this is so very narrow.
    For this picture I used a single 30w LED flood light placed right outside the frame on the left of the camera, and almost too close to my face—and still only got f11.
    A stronger light and f16 (or better yet f22) would make it much easier—though it might blind me…
    Will find out soon enough…

    If you raise the overall level of light in the room, that'll close down your pupils and make it easier to bear the intense light of the key light.

    By chance I have just purchased a godox sl60w led continuous light, just to help achieve decent light for portraits, just waiting on the parabolic softbox to arrive. I have been using a very low wattage light with no shade to try and achieve the soft shadow effect, but the light is still a little harsh. Surprisingly the godox produces a good daylight balance, its perfect for my small area.
