[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello fellow lensers, after a long absence, I am very glad to come back.
This picture was taken, just for the plain happiness of it. zebra is an animal that makes one happy whenever one spots a zebra.
unfortunately I could not get a zebra into my leaving room "studio", so I used a model.

- 2 strobes are used here, each 45 deg from the camera.
- shot against a white background.

pp (all done in ps)
- adjustment layer 1: totally unsaturated
- adjustment layer 2: increase contrast.
- add frame

* oh yea - no real zebras were heart during the session.

This is one of such shots that just a single word is enough: PERFECT.

Glad to see you back Udi! I like this graphic a lot. Very clean and perfect angle.

Ca m'impressionne toujours de voir qu'on peut faire de si belles images avec si peu de chose...
