    This is my first shoot using off-camera flash (check out strobist.com for info and ideas) and a mini-studio made with printer paper. The flash is a Sunpak 383 at 1/8th power shooting at an umbrella at camera right. There's also some more paper left of the subject as a reflector.
    The subject is a Zenit russian camera partially disassembled as it was used for parts for another camera.
    I'd appreciate your comments!

    Awesome picture. One thing I would change is the focus on the writing on the lens... a little off. I would still hang it in my house.

    This is the most shocking crime i've seen against a Zenit. Nice shot by the way

    @Lackoffunding: Thanks, thats a great compliment! I also shot another version with the focus on the lens but then most of the camera, including all the gears and knobs were noticeably out of focus.

    @blackdoglab: Don't feel bad, I have 2 other Zenits and this one helped to save one of them.
