Took the Canon on an all day shopping trip with best mate S-J (aka No 1). Not surprisingly not many photo opportunities arose!! Decided to explore lighting again and chose for my subject my other 'not so earnest' New Year's resolution (to resume learning to play guitar) as a reminder and for the lovely blue.
Lit with only a couple of candles on a long exposure, I highlighted select areas with a small hand torch while the shutter was open (idea from Digital SLR Photography Magazine). Needed a bit of touching up in Photoshop due to unspotted blemishes due to the low light.
