Day 9 – Poker, originally uploaded by AndyLane78.

I’ve had the idea for this in my head for a while now. My wife Janet deserves a big thank you as she sat through a number of lighting tests, provided the dealer’s arms and exposed 3 of the final 5 images used for this comp.

Processing is all done in Photoshop. Generally I’m happy with the way the shadows have fallen, except possibly for the big one on the right. This was thrown by the door which I’d left open, in hindsight I should have closed it but perhaps it hides other shadows which would have looked stranger.

Lighting was done with one Ikea anglepoise lamp moved to light each pose individually.

I hope you like it 🙂
