Thanks, buddy. So far, I've been photographing models for my aviation work, trying to get plenty of strong light on them to enhance the 3-D. This can work well to produce a sharp painting, as you say, but using it on a large B-17 subject recently I found that it made the thing look much too dark... so I ended up working directly from the model under a softer light; I expect I'll post a picture of that, but maybe in the 'critique' area since I'm still not convinced I got it right. You know how it is, though... you spend too long on a job and you get to a point where you just don't know whether it's finished.
