Reader Photo of the Week

This week's standout photo is by Strobist reader David Higginbotham who photographed his friend's brand new kid on his bed using a $7 piece of cloth as a backdrop.

David used a Nikon D1x and a 50mm 1.8 lens. For light, he used a Vivitar 285 flash fired into a Westcott Apollo softbox on camera left.

He says he is hooked on finding cheap pieces of fabric to use as backdrops. So I'd look for more pictures using cool backgrounds in his photo stream soon.

NOTE: This is the first of a (hopefully) regular series. Time permitting, I will be showcasing a standout photo from the Flickr Strobist pool each week.
