2008 National Champions - Up close!

2008 National Champions - Up close!

I wanted to set up some lighting and experiment with it. Nothing dramatic, just a simple one light set up. I used a  desk lamp and a cast alligator I was given as a gift years ago. My goal was to make an image that had a distinct look with the direction and intensity of the light and lots of detail. This is what came out. The light was placed to the left of the camera and above the subject.

Data: Canon G9, manual mode, macro focus, ISO 400, f 2.8, 1/40 at 8:14 PM in Jacksonville, Florida.
