Here's a bit of the story behind the nickname.


I was also going to take a shot of my camera setup for this shot too. After arranging this just so I got to work on my camera setup. I wanted it as close to on-axis as I could get. So, I setup my ladder in front of my workbench and laid my tripod horizontal across one of the higher rungs. I bungied the tripod, climbed up on a shorter ladder and set the timer for 2 seconds. No flash. Just two 250watt halogen work lights I covered with old T-shirt scraps to soften the light a bit. After about 20 minutes I smelled smoke. The T-shirts started burning. Ahhh! I snapped a few more and quit before I started a fire. [8-)
