This shot represents a common theme in my wife's classroom.

Get the books out.

Exercise the imagination.

Travel to far-off lands.

Learn something new.

The little guy was a gift from someone who recognized her gift of teaching reading.

I just wonder what good book he's got there, he hasn't been able to put it down for years...

Shot with 85mm at f2.8, 1/200th, iso 100 with two speedlights. One bounced off the ceiling as the primary source at full power and another with a DIY gridspot at 1/64th to provide the shadow.


  1. A readin' rabbit! Is that a corn-cob candle? I like the shadows and the texture on the wall.

  2. Oh wait! Mouse! I meant to say Mouse! (a readin' rodent!)
