not just pencils but victory!

Just finished day 1 of Zack Arias’ CreativeLIVE studio lighting workshop online. I FINALLY understand how to use my flash and how to get the proper exposure! 5 minutes after the workshop ended, I grabbed my camera and flash and took this picture. Nice, right? What you don’t see is the fact that I took it sitting in the dark and this is the result without any post-processing! YAY!
