Blue Knights by delbarital Blue Knights by delbarital
Well, many times people asked me how did make this picture. Though I'm always glad to hear good comments and always glad to hear that people interested in my photos and techniques I'm not availible all the time and sometimes I'm not here for a long time.

Altough it may seem that the lighting of this photo is complex, it actually pretty simple. The only light is a fluorescent light that was places just above the knights. Because of thier shape it looks like the lighting is coming from beneath but actually there was only a black Bristol paper below the board.

This is very simple yet it's one of my best photos :-)

May I have permission to use this image as the cover of a PDF pen and paper non-profit rpg expansion? (there's a mouthful) Please? Obviously you would be credited for cover art, etc.
