Project 52 ... 10

Say hello to Paul,

D200, Tamron 17 - 50 f2.8, SB 800 in softbox camera left.

I met Paul at a school Governors meeting and we got on well from the start. Paul is a very busy man so i was delighted when he agreed to sit for me. This is his favourite chair so that's where the shot was going to be and I wanted to contrast the shot with his busy life, so this is a 'resting' photo.

I under exposed the ambient, which became the fill from the right, set up the Sb 800 in a small softbox relatively close and just off camera to the left. I had it set to 1/2 or 1/4 power and the D200 on 1/250 and tweaked the f-stop to suit. A simple and subtle shot.
