Doing a strobist shot every day now to get some practice. This one is simple: A SB-600 above mask and shout through a Lastolite Tri Grip. Would also work with a normal white shot-through umbrella. The Mask is placed on some black paperboard. Done.


Song for the day:


Today could be the day you might make a change

Lock yourself indoors and plan a getaway

Take a walk outside in the heavy weather

The British Summer time's just great whatever

Join a local gang and get a cool nickname

Make your lifelong sweetheart your ball & chain

Convert your self belief for a new Religion

or leave the TV on and make a decision when you're


Waiting for the day you're not looking for something else

The Rifles - The Great Escape


  • Michael Hunter 6y

    Great lighting. Excellent subject too. I love that movie. Please excuse the upcoming quote ...

    Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

    ummm... besides the point of this being a great image... could I borrow the mask or can you tell me where you got it from? I need one for a few photos...
