Now I Remember ...

... why I took up photography, it was so that I didn't have to have photos taken of myself.  Anyway my usual models, Tina and Hannah, had both done a runner today so I had to make do with my own ugly mug to experiment with the new studio kit.  Even though I have a Lastolite HiLite, which is like a giant softbox you can shoot the flash into to give a high key effect, I wanted to play around with three lights and a knitted white background.  For this setup I had two lights with reflectors on the background giving an exposure of f16 and a single light on me (don't laugh - with a beauty dish on it) at f8.  The shots were triggerd using a wireless remote release cunningly hidden in my left hand out of shot. Don' ask, I don't know why I thought the hat was a good idea. For more laughs take a look a the studio work gallery under portraits where I have even added my guitar prop! Not my finest work, not my finest subject.
