The tech stuff in plain english: When I set up my lights I have to test how bright they are and how the light will hit my subject. Well... normally when I set up I am the only person in the house. Which means that I generally start with a prop for getting my exposure correct and then I set the timer and jump in for a few test shots.
So this particular day I must have had a little too much sugar or maybe not enough. Or maybe it was a full moon... but I was full on dork!
