i did see that exhibit, the results were remarkable, the printouts were
great, even huge, but i was really impressed with the skill of the
photographer who managed to take some extraordinary photographs of a model i
didn't think was that extraordinary, beautiful images. nice huge seven foot
softbox too, damn i need one of those. very low lighting too, it didn't seem
to be more than 250 watts of light coming out of that thing. but the results
were, indeed, very very nice.

the worst part about it was that the photographer kept talking.
