lol yeah, i just got that White Board, so i finally have a chance to play with it...but it is not a first time using Strobe... ;) i'm have experience with lighting for a while.
so it didn't take me long to get it right.

Nice, very pro looking shots. Goes to show what I really learned last thursday. I'm attending a photo-class and last thursday we got to play around with some studio equipment. I knew intellectually that the onboard flash was inferiour to studio flashes and external ones in general. But last thursday I got to see and feel it with my own eyes. The difference is just enormous. Can't wait to get my hands on a speedlite of some sort.

I just spend quite same time expecting the first picture to "load" without realizing that it was actually a border. (Yes I do have a pathetic 13" screen). Nice pictures.

Lovely composition on the first playing card shot. It appears you use your on camera flash in combination with the speedlite? You have a double shadow (one specular, one diffused) this is almost always a no-no. Other than that everything looks fine.
