Urbanly Outfitted

Category: self portrait


Focal Length:17mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 7D


First note: turn off all ceiling fans when working with flashes and light stands. Second note: boy am I thankful that flash isn’t dead after a hit from a blade and the ensuing fall to the floor eight feet beneath. Hotshoe is busted and the wide angle diffuser is gone, but by god it still works.

Picked up another pair of glasses today to photograph. Unlike yesterday’s frames (seen here on me), they have a clear front-frame and a metallic finish on the lenses which will be a great challenge to conquer from a technical/lighting standpoint (that’s the point). I had planned to make something similar to yesterday’s photo, but en-route to my room/studio the beast beckoned and plans changed.

Both pair are from my beloved Urban Outfitters along with that most pleasant new button-up. Not sure where the deer’s from.
