Strobist Boot Camp II

Originally uploaded by Objectif Image
I've decided to participate in the Strobist Boot Camp II - mainly to get me shooting again after a long, dry (creatively) winter. I've been reading Strobist on an almost daily basis for about three years now, so it's about time I jumped in. David Hobby, who runs the site, has created a fabulous resource and global community of people interested in off-camera flash.

Assignment #1 of BC2 is a Headshot. ( ). We were encouraged to shoot an unemployed person as a way of helping someone looking for work. Oddly I don't know anyone unemployed. Guess that comes from being so firmly rooted in a government town.

In any case, this is my entry. A headshot of Mattias dressed in his new TMNT pyjamas. Gotta get this boy in some martial arts lessons!

Part 2 of the assignment, for some level of integrity to ensure people are shooting new material, is that your subject then has to shoot you in the same light you shot the model in. So yes, Matt took this picture of me. Both shot in the back yard about dusk.

Columbine 2

A white version of the same columbine flower.

Spring Flowers

Our garden is green and colorful. Summer flowers are beginning to bloom, now that the tulips are gone. Here is a remarkably beautiful hybrid columbine.
