I've been doing more practising for a new set of team portraits, this time just of Tom K and Diesel. The effect is aptly called 'Toy Effect' on the camera and I've used two lamps and a home made reflector.

TheOneManKid these photos using the effect on your camera called 'Toy Effect' really work brilliantly Wink.

Great photos of great looking vam! cheers cheers cheers

The subtle green background colour works a treat! It seems to enhance what's in front of it. I use it for all my indoor shots.

Toy Effect seems to enhance the colours and apply the edge shadowing; works well for head and shoulders portraits. With Tom K it especially enhances the colour of lips and scar making him look like he has makeup on... Razz

Yeah, I agree! The background colour was accidental... where the lighting setup created shadow in the back of the white bookshelf studio and then the camera effect has enhanced it into a greeny tinge. I am very pleased with the outcome... Very Happy
