This one was taken at much the same time as the one of Evin I put up a while ago, and like that shot, this was taken while playing around with flash. In this instance I was showing John the difference between a diffused flash shot (using a Stofen diffuser) and a straight shot, and suggested at the time that a diffused shot was better because the lighting wasn't as harsh. As you can probably tell though, this is the straight shot which, in this instance, I think I prefer.

On a totally unrelated matter (and apologies for duplicating this in the news link at the bottom of the comments popup), we've had a few enquires recently as to whether we could sell gift certificates, either to buy prints or pay for our training weekends. So, if you're interested, we've put up some details here:

Hopefully it should all be reasonably self-explanatory, but if you do have any questions about them, please ask.
