It's 5 O'clock on a Saturday......

Todays image was another one that was kind of getting down to the wire and Lance has kind of been my go to guy for last minute images. I went over to his house to watch a movie and showed up with a camera and an idea of shooting him at his piano. We did this in a matter of about five minutes, I clamped an SB-800, zoomed to 35mm, to a chair behind and to the right of Lance without its diffuser. This was the first test image that I did and only shot 12 frames. I shot in RAW for a change which allowed me to use all of the info in the one image for an HDR image. It took longer then bracketing 3-7 frames in JPEG and combining them but since Lance was actually playing I couldn't bracket and get him to line up properly.
The only thing this image needs now is a cigarette smoldering in an ashtray in the lower left part of the shot.
