Paid yet another visit to the school where I taught English for twenty years, to take a few more planned shots. I used two SpeedLights for this one: one inside the booklet and the other I held in my left hand, aiming for the cover. Took a few attempts, but we managed one we all quite liked in the end.
I’ve done this ‘light coming out of a book’ shot enough times now for it to have reached Cliché status, but hey – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. (PS: We study whole Shakespeare plays. This booklet was just being used for the pretty illustrations and because it was big enough to hide the SpeedLight inside!)
