Prickily Hooks

Shot for Strobist Sunday "Details" and Macro Mondays "Pain". Ever had a fish hook in your finger, man that can hurt. Now that my son is of fishing age and loves doing it. I've been getting jabbed by this hook more times than I want to count.

    That does look painful.

    Excellent side lighting. As you might have noticed from my own submission this week, I'm a huge fan of side lighting against a dark background. HSS/MM!

    I keep getting reminded of that scene from "Something About Mary" where Ben Stiller gets hooked in his cheek. Pretty visceral photo, Derek! HSS/MM
