Strobist Photojournalism

Strobist Photo Journalism
Sometimes you just get lucky. The photo of Canada's PM Harper, though not a prize-winner, is an example how a photo can be enhanced from another photographer, in my opinion anyway. In this case a pool photographer lends a helping hand with his flash while I took my photo in a strobist off-camera-flash-style.

Strobist info:
VAL photog to camera left with strobe set at unknown power (probably TTL); triggered by coincidence.

I love the stereotypical, shade-wearing security goons. And is that Minister James Moore's fat arse turned to the camera?

Damn I'm good! To quote the immortal words of EE Cummings:

a politician is an arse upon
which everyone has sat except a man

I showed this around to staff here at the hotel in Dublin, no one having a clue who the guy with the Roman Helmet hair cut is... nor caring either.

Yes, Stephen. Thanks for having me as the evening's conversation fodder. The true audience who would appreciate this photo is for 'strobists'. If you don't know who 'they' are, then you aren't one of them. LOL! Just I just type L-O-L?
