The Wizard

Newer Older

Got really bored tonight and started playing with my flash and a cool glass lamp shade I found when cleaning the basement.

8 second exposure. After the flash fired I move up close to the lens and shined a flash light in my face as you can see to the right of the frame.

Strobist: Vivitar 825HV inside lamp shade, facing up on 1/16 power. Triggered with eBay triggers.

    Very nice picture. What kind of triggers did you use? I need to pick up some for my D7000.
