Shuweeet Sansai photo, Geek! Does this new camera mean you will bless us with more photos any time soon? Guess I should check your flickr?

cool setup

wow. i tend to keep things simple on my end. usually one light w/ many reflectors. no light tent though. it would be easier, but i think only w/ very reflective pieces.

cheers !
enjoying geeks photographs too

Yes, more photos, I've been shooting a lot lately, but not much that is tea-related. I'm currently up to my eyeballs in editing photos from the workshop I just attended. They are waiting patiently for some images for their latest brochure, this seems a bit like work! :lol:
