Even after several years of doing this, I suck at lighting. But just like art and music, practice makes perfect. Anyways, this is the stack of books I wanted to start reading/reviewing/finishing at the beginning of summer. Actually, this stack should be even higher. Add in a few summer school books (Japanese and Music Theory), med books (EMT) and just random novels/works (Poe, photography and DIY stuff) and the stack grows quite rapidly. Maybe that’ll be tomorrow’s shot. O yea. Don’t forget Shakespeare and the Bible (which I really wanted to finish over summer but so far, I’m not doing so good.)

EXIF: ƒ/5.6 1/60th ISO 100 The ƒ/5.6 should give enough depth of field to read all the titles of the books and it also helps bring down the ambient. It does affect the flash power but I can also bring the flash power up. The 1/160th is mostly what kills the ambient light. Unfortunately, unlike my D200, the GF1’s sync speed only goes down to 1/160th, which isn’t good enough to kill the ambient entirely.
