Many thanks for your assistance jdf.....My subject wants to be posed in a dark environment with just enough light to show his face and the guitar he is playing.I'm guessing he's seen something similar on an album cover somewhere.Vinyl is still in production isn't it?Candles came to my mind or some strands of Christmas tree lights on the floor or maybe a 40 watt light blub on a drop cord.I'll have to cover the light to dim it if it's too bright.You can probably figure out I'm not very smart at artsy studio techniques......Thanks for the help....jeff...
