17:52 - Ministry of Silly Walks

I just watched Fawlty Towers (again). John Cleese is a comic genius! Couldn't figure out what I was going to shoot today, this just came to me. If you are a Cleese fan, there is no doubt you know all about the ministry. I had to substitute sunglasses for a bowler hat, and my briefcase isn't typical, but I had to make do.


I myself recently received a grant to develop my walk, and make it even sillier.


Strobist: SB600 just out of the frame on the right side through an umbrella. SB600 hidden behind the fern in the middle, bare for the dramatic shadow. Triggered via Nikon CLS



Update: March 15th 2009, I've replaced the original photo with one that has increased brightness, and a little more contrast, everything else is the same, I was just unhappy with the way the original looked when I uploaded it, finally got around to the edit.
