My Daughter's boyfriend received a graduation gift from his father. It's a Gretsch Electromatic, G5120. It's a semi hollow guitar designed to create a very clear and crisp sound. It sounds great even unplugged. Not quite Chet Atkins but close enough.
It was also an excellent opportunity for photography.
- My son's work lights help create a dramatic light effect. This is the first time I worked with external lights. I took photos from several angles, and this angle seemed the best. I think I'll try this more in the future.
- Distracting the person having his/her photo taken creates a much more natural look. Derek was focusing on his playing not on the camera. Hey, that's the same lesson that I learned with Tank.
