Day 201 – Practicing with Speedlite

The day got away from me, but I wanted to play with my lights anyway. I got this little vise from our HR director. I thought it would be a useful tool to hold reflector cards (and it is). But today I gave lighting it a go.  I lit it from camera right with my Speedlite using an umbrella and a diffuser panel. To the left, a white poster-board bounced some of the light back onto the vise.

For fun I also shot our Maneki-neko.
