If you’ve noticed the new news blog on my glass eye you may already have seen that I had another image I was going to post but I still haven’t got round to putting it up yet. Anyway, today I wanted to post a different picture on my Twitter account and I put up the original full size version of this shot. Twitter crops the image square automatically, though, and I didn’t like the framing so decided to make one myself and ran my fake Lomo action on it, which I converted to B&W. I have to thank my parents for paying for the othodontic treatment in my youth – all those braces paid off in the end!
I took it last summer when I was practising with my new off-camera flash kit. In terms of the strobist info that I can remember, the flash was camera right just behind the camera (which was handheld at arm’s length). It was firing into a silver reflective umbrella, which I haven’t used since as I prefer the shoot-through look. I was in manual mode but I forget the actual settings on the flash, although I think I was using an SB-600.
Not very helpful info but it’s been a long day and bed is calling 🙂
(I think I’ll post a bit about the lomo action on the news page at some point, by the way)
