    some terrific photos here, adrian. well done. especially looking forward to next year’s batch of blackdrops.

  2. oz says:

    yeah, those black and whites are killer. How do you do those? I assume you aren’t walking around town with a big black blanket…

  3. adrian says:

    Thanks, Scott and Oz.

    Oz, I do some of them at my place, but yeah, I’ve brought a big piece of velvet along with my camera/ flash/ etc to shows to do them as well.

  4. oz says:

    I guess that velvet doubles as a superhero cape, so you’re killing two birds with one stone.
