Challenging Game - July 13th, 2011 (194/365)
I'm setting a weekly challenge for myself over the next month to find an image I like in explore and attempt to re-create it as closely as possible. This is my first one - inspired by this shot. Unlike the original I've not used any image manipulation to composite the image. The only modification has been post-processing for the black-and-white and removal of background elements (as I only have a highly-reflective tile bathroom to shoot in). Dobs got in on the action too.
This was shot with a Canon 580EX II on 1/64 to camera left, bounced off an umbrella. Exposure set to 4 seconds and, once I chucked the dice up in the air, the flash was triggered by pocket wizard held in my other hand (an IR remote triggered camera).
