From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.
For several and various reasons, I had to take a hiatus from the blog posting, and so I decided to resume with this little image that I shot yesterday. About three days ago, I added a new reflector to my little studio lighting setup, called a "beauty dish". It is primarily used for portraits of the fairer gender, but is also useful for still life shots. Actually, when I was shooting this little setup, I thought that a few members of the Irish musicians group that I have had the pleasure of playing with in the last year, might possibly enjoy it....especially Sharon & Jim. Sharon is a wonderful violinist, and used to play with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra. After acquiring the violin from my late Father-in-Law, I am still trying to scratch out a few tunes myself, but so far, it appears to be a better prop for my photography than a musical instrument...in my hands at least. Hope you enjoy it.
