^I think the double reflection looks way cool.

Unfortunately I no longer have that table as i replaced it with an oak one. Ill try plexiglass though

The other thing I forgot to mention is that I will only be using one speedlight (and modifiers) so will be compositing multiple shots with the light in various positions

Thanks. Generally speaking alcohol and I don't go together very well. I never like the taste of alcohol, but I love the tipsy feeling it can give you. I just know when to stop (and that's pretty soon here since I still want to know what I'm doing). The sharp taste of Tequila can easily be eliminated by drinking Tequila the right way being:

- Briefly lick the skin between your thumb and forefinger or the back of your hand.
- Sprinkle a small pinch of salt onto the area. The saliva will help it stick.
- Breathe out, lick the salt, drink your tequila shot and bite the lemon.

Biting the lemon afterwards largely removes the sharp taste in my opinion. Although I must say I skip the lemon part most of the time because I don't always have a lemon in my fridge. :-P

off camera flash with snoot maybe can help you achieve your goal.

I am a fan of the Don Julio. In fact I think I still have a bottle hanging around. I may have a shot tonight.

Me too! :-D

A little gear porn since you guys are always talking about new lenses and other G.A.S. related illnesses.  :p

We were in Death Valley last week and ran into Keith Brust - a wildlife/nature cinemaphotographer working on a project for the BBC. On the right is a Sony A7S with an adapted Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 lens.

On on the left - 800mm lens with a Red system on a massive tripod. Serious gear lust ensued - especially after Keith was kind enough to let is operate it. Wow!

200 f/2 L = dream lens

That's what many people say.


Canons to the left, Canons to the right,
We hold our L glass toward the light,
Digitizing in a snap reflective glory
That will forever tell our imaged story.
