Expedition at the Asylum

I'm scouting locations for some future shoots, and invited some friends (I'd never met -- but that's what makes the inter nets so cool!) to come along.

One of them, Jan Klier brought his lighting gear along, and after we'd walked the grounds a while, we hauled them up the hill to one of the old barns.

I learned more about my flash, metering, and light in the 60 minutes or so we worked together than in the three months since I started using external lighting -- Jan was so generous with his time, expertise, and equipment.

You can see my work from the event here (I got a few I like), but my favorite of the day was the black and white version Jan got of me.
