105/365 – Melting into the sunset

Originally uploaded by Micah Taylor

I tried to have a nice self portrait with a lovely sunset but things didn’t feel right. I felt frumpy and wished my lovely wife was not trying to get out 9mo back to sleep so someone good looking could be in the picture.

Sooooo… I decided to jump in protest. I forgot I had a slow shutter to capture the fading light in the sky and ended up melting my head into the setting sun. I love it when a plan comes together.

Strobist info: sb600 high camera left at 1/2 power shot through 43-inch umbrella and triggered by pocket wizards.
