Helpful strobe website

If you want some help with lighting ideas and how to set them up, check out this website. Each photograph is accompanied by a diagram that shows how it was lit. The diagrams aren't always entirely self-explanatory but they're usually still help anyway.

I'd like to go here (Germany) some day!

Municipal Worker by Adam Jungwirth

Snapped this one this morning after passing this guy on the Oshkosh Avenue bridge on my way to class. I think he's changing a bulb on a street light. After passing the man, I parked on the end of Summit Avenue and then ran up the shore of the river to get within viewing distance, so I didn't have a lot of time to compose before he came down, maybe a matter of 45 seconds or so. I got one other composition from a bit further back where you can see the entirety of the crane-like thing he's standing on but it was less interesting. If I wasn't already late for class I would've hung around a bit to see if he went back up. It definitely could use some clouds in the upper left portion of the photo, but what are you gonna do?

Edit: I tinkered with this thing a bunch, and went between black & white and color, but it seems nothing can remedy my dissatisfaction with not being able to get closer :(

LOL. Don't worry, this isn't really Dr.G. This is his look alike that a few of us Titanites spotted at Trafalgar Square in London. There were many Gleason look alikes in London. It was kinda scary. =/

I'll admit, I'm a creeper.

This photo was taken on a bus in London, on the way to our hotel right after we landed. The majority of my memory card from that trip consists of random people...and yes I know this sounds creepy; kids. I really like capturing candid moments of people that don't know I'm taking pictures of them. Hence, the title of this post. I swear I'm not totally creepy. This is Tesco man by the way. Guys in England don't even have to try to look good, they just do.
