171/365 - Let there be light

So after the lack of success I had yesterday and my general lack of inspiration I got and email (quickly followed by an IM) from Andy.

In it he offered to send me a old flash he no longer uses and offered me some helpful advice. Aren't big brothers great.

One thing he suggested was to try using a desk lamp to light something, so that is what I did. The top photo is without any additional lighting and the bottom one was achieved by simply positioning a desk lamp to illuminate the face. I don't like harsh shadows so I tried few positions before settling on having the lamp pointing at a white writing pad underneath the man made of beans.
