Played around with the camera and flash today again and got this nice drop-shot (the best one out of about 60 or so). The background is my balcony (you can see the flower boxes) :)

Nothing is manipulated in this shot – it’s only slightly cropped in Photoshop (and I corrected the levels as usual)

Busted out the ring flash for this one. I don’t have much to say tonight. Almost bought a car but ended up getting kind of screwed over.
