Recent participation in some photography forums has piqued an interest in doing a Project 365. Photography has been a hobby on and off for over 40 years and in the last 18 months my interest has intensified. So I've decided to jump in, give it a shot (no pun intended) and see if I can shoot every day for a year.

My expectations for this project are that it will provide motivation to expand my skills both behind the camera and in post-processing and provide a vehicle for experimentation. My photog pal Doug has been a great mentor, so I want to publicly say thanks; this is your fault (kidding of course).

It is going to be a learning experience, so any and all comments, critiques and encouraging words are welcome.

Thanks for viewing.

7/25/10 - Day 219
Two independent themes converged and led me to today's shot for the Daily Shoot assignment #252:

1) Two of my Daily Shoot friends (Remek & Zev) are terrific when it comes to lighting.  Today, I found the stand for my SB-600 flash unit and decided to try remote triggering of the off-camera flash from the on-camera flash.

2) Lin went to the fruit & vegetable store and brought home a whole jicama, which I had never seen before, other than cut up in strips.  I decided this would be a perfect subject to explore depth through side lighting.
