Gritty Grimey Guitar


I think this may be one of my top three favorite photos from this year so far.


Shot with a friend in my makeshift studio using my D300, softboxes to blow out the background (talk about jury rigging) and one SB-600 camera left at head height at about a 45 degree angle from the subject with a diffuser. The second was low and camera right firing from the side of the subject, also diffused. All triggered with the D300's CLS.


Edited in Lightroom and I really didn't do much aside from the crop and minor messing around.


We both must have been channeling The Boss because this photo made me think of Mr. Springsteen as soon as I got it up on the computer.
