Unlocking Words of Magic by vvmasterdrfan Unlocking Words of Magic by vvmasterdrfan
This was a photoshoot with one of my best friends as an early birthday gift :)

I also painted this picture --> [link]

My Favorite! ^_^ Its like Disney Magic!
This one turned out so Flawlessly.
I could tell right when it came out of the camera that it was perfect.
The explosion inside the book and the extending from it flares were magically perfect, and the color on the tips added the perfect touch.
The reflection in his glasses turned out perfect
His expression is perfect.
The Lighting is flawless. i did have to darken the room in certain areas to get it right.
Its as if he was in a pitch black room.. and he opened the magic book to reveal its secrets.

LOVE IT!!! ^_^ <3

It's funny in your comments you would mention Disney Magic, because that was exactly the thing I thought when I first saw this piece. I think it would make a fun series to shoot a couple more of these with various Disney kind of creatures crawling up out of the book toward you. Or I could see this being a poster for "the magic of reading" or something like that.

That being said, your lighting works excellently here. Your model's expression works well.
I like your magic effect.

If I was to change anything at all, it would be in the cropping, I think you could take some of the black off on the top and right, and still have an effective photo?
What do you think?
