Neat shot! What kind of flashlight did you use? I always think of light from a flashlight as being inconsistent and yellowish, not very good for photography, but I like this.

So, Betty caught in action : ) Very nice!! You might wish to try some high- key images with a white backdrop in addition to the white ground..

thanks everyone,

hi mtngal, i used just a basic flashlight, and did get the yellow color at first, buti shot a custom white balance of a white sheet of typing paper. i have been really working on white balance it makes a huge difference!

hi bahadir, i will try your suggestion, i was mainly going for the pool hall look where you have the one light in the darkness lighting up the subject!. and again thank you everyone!

Very nice shot!

I dont mean to nitpick, but when photos are in the Critiques section I always look for ways to improve it even more.
I like that her eyes are in focus, but if the dof was slightly larger, you would get her boots in focus as well.

Like I said, only an idea, and only nit-picking. Great shot though!
