Project 52 ... 40

David wears shirts... lots of 'em and not just ordinary ones at that!

D200, Tamron 17 - 50, f2.8, SB80 bare flash camera right, 1/2 power
They are all patterned and flash and sometimes loud, but very 'on trend' as my ten year old daughter would say. David came to work with us for a few weeks; stayed for a few months and is a valued member of the team, but is sadly going to a more permanent position in the near future. When I approached him to take his portrait, it struck me that getting him to wear one of his famous shirts was the way to go. Well he didn't just bring one, he brought half a dozen!

David is lit by a single SB800 at half power or so to camera right just out of picture. I dropped the ambient light by about a stop, set the camera to manual at 1/200th at f8 and started shooting.

Thanks David for being such a good sport and I wish you well for the future, (and you might notice, David, that the brick coursing doesn't align with your shirts either! - you had to be there)
