I know that I cut the hands, I didn't want to, but i had to.. the subject was holding the off-camera flash in his hand. the flash was a sb-800 with the omni bounce thing on the head (i think that's how it's called) to soften the shadows. manual value (1/4 i think) and the on-camera flash (set as master) would fill the subject (1/128 power i think).

no studio, just in the front of a white wall.

thanks for the replies.

Cheers,
HNV
