After the Lecture

Tonight was the birth of a project. Or perhaps me proving to myself that I’d follow through with an idea I got excited about. I predict the approach will change a bit, but the setup will retain its guts. The guts being two flashes rigged up to some tripod legs and … well, it’s a giant heavy spidery black mess of camera equipment.

Complete bullseye here, my friend. It captures people as they are, free from fake smiles, apprehension, or other plagues of photography. The whole idea behind the “project” was to get just this.

Enough! Can’t think of anything else to say about it. If you were one of my subjects today, shoot me an email and I’ll send over your photo straight away.
