I actually captured this image this past weekend but didn't upload til now. This week's theme gave me an excuse to try something I've wanted to try and learn how to do... off camera flash. I know it's not perfect, but I was pretty happy with the results as it was my first attempt. I used this African carving as a model, and was shooting for a dark mysterious shadowed look. I think off camera lighting is going to open a whole new world of ideas for me - all I have to do now is practice.
