Project 52 ... 42

Meet Indiana Jones Peter,

I have known Peter for too many years now! We first met during the last recession when he and his wonderful wife, Muriel, gave us many a Red Cross package, they are also God Parents to our son. A champion weightlifter in his youth, now, Peter is a bit of a modern day Indiana Jones, globe trotting all over in search of adventure. Here he is in his study with artifcacts from every corner of the world. Whether it is in the African bush or the Far East or South America, there is always a story to be told and a little something to adorn the walls of his study.

Peter is lit with an SB800 in a silver reflecting umbrella to camera left and behind and on the floor I have a Vivitar 285, both on about half or quarter power. The camera was set at f5.6 and 1/200. The room is tiny and with the umbrella, Peter and myself there was hardlyt any room to move at all.

I don't like 'busy' shots as a rule, but this one works because it mirrors his travels and also says something about the world getting smaller. Thanks for being such a good sport, Peter, and do tell us where you are off to next!
