Heat storm

Photo: Leigh 2009

There was an amazing lighting storm tonight so I decided to play a bit and try using the flashes of quick light during the storm as my only light source. The result was this photo. Thank you to my friend Jim's daughter Jayme for being the model :)

Have a wonderful weekend everyone. I am going to head to the thrift stores, (which has been way to long) and find me some goodies.

Beautiful shot! I've been messing with exposure readings a lot lately for my newest series. It's addictive! Good luck at the thrift stores (oh how I miss Denver thrift stores).
