Untitled

This is the only one from our Strobist day in Zürich on which I’ve done a reasonable amount of Photoshop work. The pool was filthy: covered in little bits of white floating polystyrene and lined with green scum. Just don’t ask me to do the same in the real pool. ;-) Other than that: how […]

“Say Cheese”, Studio photograph

This Lladró statue, designed by Francisco Catalá, was a gift from my parents and fits well with my photographic tendencies. It is also a great test piece for studio photography, so when I was looking to test flash technique this evening (in particular, soft lighting) it was immediately brought out.
