The return of the Soulchild

An aspect of photography I have always wanted to do more of is Editorial photography. Particularly those dealing with prominent personalities in our society. The type of creativity required in this area is more my thing in that you are creatively capturing an element of the personality in your frame.

A chief inspirant in this area is Michael Grecco. I've mentioned him before on this photoblog but I suggest you check out his work.

This shot was taken about two years ago on my EOS Canon 10D, I only used a combination of Natural light and my Canon EX 580 speedlite from the right. Some of you might remember this shot and this shot too which was done at the sametime.
