Poor jon this is his third appearance in 3 days ..

I was given a wireless trigger for my support flash system..
went to buy some flowers for a bit of fun with the new toy.
£7 was the cheapest ...and to be honest couldnt see any I liked ..
So my super hot model from Leeds had to step in ...Wink
I can see there will be alot of fun with this new toy.
The trigger .... not the model ...

A sincere thankyou to John (alsoppdigitalart) for his user award for my multi piccy of jon and myself.
What a pleasant surprise.Thankyou!!

You are lucky to have such a willing model, Barbs, and a very photogenic one at that Wink. An exccellent capture, and what a beautiful instrument. Carol

Beautifully lit and posed - maybe the ideal composition with the instrument as the lute forms a diagonal while Jon's eyeline implies another.
Very good tones too.

Quote: I can see there will be a lot of fun with this new toy.
The trigger .... not the model ...

Sure there will be fun with the model, too, especially if he carries on playing that instrument while you're trying to set up the flash WinkGrin

Great lighting. Caught him wonderfully. Enjoy the trigger. I got one a few months back. Lots of fun setting it up. My BT line and broadband packed up within an hour of first using it wirelessly and I thought it was all those powerful waves flying around the house from the camera to trigger but by time BT came out it was just a fault on the line outside. Coincidence! Enjoy Barb. Paul

That new lighting system works well i think!
I like that mandolin! It looks pretty old and delicate, like something out of the Renaissance period.
The facial expression works also very well and shows a hint of concentration and the love and enjoyment in music and the arts. So thatís all good!

But Denim Jeans? Thatís a bit of a culture clash here isnít?! SmileGrin
