    For 7 Euros in a local art shop I bought a polystyrene head - a quick coat of paint and handy microphone stand later and I have a very patient assistant/model for fun and experimentation.

    apologies but shots taken on a canon :)

    I don't have the heart to tell him that there's no viewfinder on the back of that camera...

    Hiya Harry!!:th_salute:

    (I feel bad for Harry, must be hard working as a photo assistant without eyes...or hands..and no hair.)

    :rofl: Wonderful and I'm thrilled for both you and Harry, Kevin.

    Perhaps he'll be helping you with some new Aperture 3 videos?:biggrin:

    You seem to be taking the "shop window dummies" thread a little too seriously, don't you think? :cool:

    Meet *my* Harry, my long-standing assistant! (Yes, that's really his name). He is not quite as handy for lighting practice, because of his facial hair...

    ... and it doesn't ever get much better...

    ... but he's always along on my photo walks, and always happy to "help" :smile:

    Rudy, great shots of the other Harry!!!
    - Number 2 is great of the box
    - Number 4 I might like better in 1:1 format (remove some on the right to have is leg in right bottom corner) - not sure if it would work for everybody

    Number 1 is also good, but then I prefer the second (and comparable story with 3 and 4).

    Thanks Joep! :smile:

    I should mention that all of my above were taken with Canon equipment, I didn't pick up my E-PL1 until yesterday. (But I m about to post in the E-PL1 image thread, to redeem myself :wink:).

    I also like days I don't have to think (at the moment enjoying some wine after the home-cooked spaghetti)

    But I "think" this is getting a little :eek:fftopic:.
    - Let us hope they can forgive us, please...
