As we have a technique taken from the Speedliter's handbook today we want to see portraits you've shot inside.

This was the first shot that I took with a home made 'beauty dish' - although the attachment is unlike any other that I have seen. I was holding it in my outstretched right hand and trying to shoot in portrait mode with my left, (problematic for the right handed!) I also lost my balance half-way through the shot, but I think that it still worked pretty well, it cost me 69p to make, (but the glue was free as I snaffled it from work!)
