Making Of Week 36

Alright I'll admit I slacked off again this week and just photographed what I was doing instead of planning out a photo. The results are good though. For this shot I had to combat the direct sunlight in the shadowy side of this boulder, so I used my Canon 600EX flash at full power. I didn't have a tripod for a light stand and the shrubbery was all lightweight, so I gathered an armful together and clamped the light to the whole bundle with the gorilla pod. I framed the shot and used a human tripod to hold the camera, since the gorilla pod was already in use. From there it was just a matter of getting a good position down, and triggering the shot with a wireless remote in my right hand. All in all I'm pleased!
