This is the second shot of this guy that I've put up (the first one is here) and while it's hardly the most creative portrait I've ever put up I'm posting it now because a) I've not had time to prepare anything else (and suspect I may not have anything else worth preparing anyway), and b) because I think the lighting is worth a mention. This shot was taken on the last night of my trip to London (to the Europe Photobloggers meetup) and by this time I'd taken around 600 shots in a little over 24 hours. Having totally run out of inspiration I started playing around with the flash on an off-camera cord. From what I remember this one was shot with the flash at my hip over the head of which was a beer bottle – hence the green tinge. Anyway, I thought it was worth posting if for no other reason than to point out that you can achieve quite interesting lighting if you're drunk enough ;-)
Oh, and I should add that this was taken just at the point where he noticed the beer bottle/flash combo – hence the downward glance.
Hopefully I'll have a bit of time tomorrow to either post-process something I already have or shoot something new.
