Exercise; Concentrating light

For this exercise I wanted light to fall on just part of the scene, in this case on the Clementine giving the effect of a spotlight. For this I took an old studio flash fitted with a snoot, but then used black card to form a cone at the end of the snoot (only about an inch diameter at the narrow end) and used this to form a concentrated beam of light.

What have I learned from taking this photo? I had rarely used a snoot before taking this photo, let alone modifying it with rolled up black card. I have learnt how to produce a spotlight effect from the exercise of concentrating light.
