In Exile 3

Today we have Thabang, a muso, who bared his soul for the In Exile series. He also chose to dress the part and bring props – these with the suitcase worked best for the theme. He looked far too happy with his guitar to look like he was suffering in exile! 🙂 Enjoy them and let me know what you think…

Generally I am a strong supporter of the philosophy that better equipment doesn’t make you a better photographer. But there are times when good kit makes all the difference…
