Heavy Metal

f/3.5, 1/250, ISO-100, 21mm

A few days ago was International Left Handers Day. To honor the occasion, I told the company that I would do a free portrait for anyone who could sign their name legibly and comfortably with their left hand. This gentleman – a software engineer by trade and a heavy metal guitarist to boot – took me up on the offer. This was created with a Speedlite and 7″ snoot, as well as a warm gel.

    Love the idea of your challenge and so glad this chap was able to meet it. Superb lighting. Amazing what you’ve achieved with one SpeedLight and a snoot. (My Gary Fong PowerSnoot is my all time favourite photographic accessory.)

      Thanks! I actually made my own snoot with a cardboard box and some duct tape 🙂 It’s not perfect but it does pretty well.
