It's fun to experiment.

 

I saw this photo by the stupidly talented (and sadly AWOL - booooo and come back) Fwumpbungle from his second 365 project and promised myself I'd try something similar.

 

That was in 2009.

 

So, here's my effort. Not quite what I had in mind, but how often does a photo develop into an exact replica of what you see in your head?

 

I'd pictured a more heroic, chin out, head aloft, staring manfully into the distance kind of a shot. When the chips were down and I had to choose just one, this was the one that captured the effect the best. The one with the stupid face. Oh well.

 

This started out fun, but by shot 92 or whatever I'd had enough. And was hungry.

 

I do, however, have big ideas for something similar, just ... scaled up a bit.

 

Expect to see that in around 2015 ...

 

Strobist info: Snooted SB700 with yellow gel camera right at full power. SB600 with blue gel camera left at 1/8 power. Fired by CLS.
