Dotun is on a roll, loving this bro. Cannot fault this image one bit tongue Tried this same image some time back, but did not seem to like what I came up with, yours beats mine hands down smile

Meanwhile the chicks in this are Hot HOt HOT smile

P.s
What lighting AND BACKDROP do you use?
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Suby, it was definately a last minute idea. I use 3 Alienbee strobes. I use seamless backdrops black, gray or white. The backdrop here is a white seamless paper and I blast the background with one of the strobes.

grin This is brilliant!
Hey Dotun!
I really like what you are doing.
Have you gone fulltime?
BTW I remember seeing ur wedding website sometime ago.
You are much better than the guy that did your photographs.

I think I need info on those alien bees. really considering.
Dotun Ayodeji: lol..don't let my wife hear that about the wedding shots smile No this is all part time work, I do this on my weekends off. The alienbees are decently priced so I recommend them, but the trick with strobes flash, is that you have learn a lot about ligthing and other techniques to make them work right. Thanks Bunmi.
Nice one. The expressions, the BG, all are nice...
Love it. Such a fun composition.
Very well done and funny Dotun - Bravo !!
