They love me, they really love me

Shoei motorcycle helmetThe Strobist blog resurrected my interest in photography about a month ago. This blog has quite a following, with regular viewers in the tens of thousands and 5000 members in its Flickr group. After $200 of flash, flash stand, and reflective photo umbrella, I started on my first real project last night. It made the front page today, for its ghetto setup, the fact that it's my first post, and the interesting technique, which I shamelessly stole from someone else.
