The Handyman

I've been planning to get deeper into some software technologies, and have found some excellent resources to help me get up to speed.
The first order of business is to get my HP lapop ready to handle the memory footprint imposed by installing the latest and greatest development tools. To that end, I've purchased more memory and a larger hard-drive. There are terrific bargains to be found on eBay - I got this particular new-in-the-box drive for a song.

Now, if I can only figure out where it'll fit...

Shot at 26mm (17-35 zoom), 1/200, f8. AB800 overhead in the soft box. The yellow work light gets the credit for the work a 430EX with grid spot is actually doing.
//Edit: Lance suggested trying the burn tool on this version. The above copy is the result of that attempt - clearly I have some practicing to do...


  1. Dr. Dustrude... paging Dr. Dustrude... you're needed in surgery. Holy cow dude - don't slip! Great photo - I like the camera angle. Do you have a remote or did you use the timer?

  2. Thanks! I have a remote shutter release on a 2' cord - a little short for this, but with the timer it helped.

  3. I like the shot. If you used the burn tool in PS you could take the light off your shoulder to make it a bit more believable ;)
