Well, my best friend, close neighbor, and favorite photo-blogger Ryan Hyde got some new equipment recently -- namely, an off-camera flash set-up. So of course, what better way to test the stuff out than to set it up in our apartment courtyard in the dark, with me in a 50's prom dress.

Ryan was running around like a mad genius, setting up every shot to work perfectly. He even stuck a stool in the middle of the courtyard's decorative rock pile, so I could pose for awkward, Sears Portrait Studio-esque prom pictures.
Meanwhile, I get bored easily, and it was cold as the innermost circle of hell out there. So I developed my prom queen's story a little bit further.
Got wasted on Nyquil and qualudes and had a lovely evening sitting in the middle of the football field.
