Those photos are great man. I went to art school for graphic design but sort of got gypped out of ever learning how to take a decent photo (they went all-digital the year I started the program and we were using our own point-and-shoot cameras... bleh) and although my girlfriend has a really nice DSLR with a pricy lens, I can't for the life of me take a photo that I'm truly happy with. The good ones are always accidents, but they pale in comparison to yours.
This may be something impossible for you to explain, but at any point, could you do some sort of "tips and tricks" tutorial on how to photograph figures for the members here? I'm sure I'm not the only retard with a nice camera who just doesn't know how to use it.
People seem to know how to set up a scene, but then photographing it is an art in itself.
