Here's another co-worker of mine at Quartus Engineering — this time inside the office area. So if you've ever wondered what engineering looks like, this is it folks. We sit in front of our computers all day and listen to our iPods from time to time, occasionally getting up to raid the kitchen or doodle on the white boards.
I shot this at 13mm with my wireless flash behind me and to the right. I bounced the flash off the ceiling and diffused it with an Omni-Bounce to prevent terribly harsh shadows, but they're still not as soft as I would've liked. The setting is in one of the bullpens (which is like an office without walls on two sides), but we're facing the corner that has two walls so you still can't really see what the office looks like.
Cole's all time classic hobby is fly-fishing; he's been at it for about 13 years now. In general he likes being creative. In the last 4 years or so he's done things like build custom furniture, paint, compose and record music, work on cars, and play baseball. Cole has just been out here in SD for a year or so, and he had lived in the Fenway (in Boston) for the previous 6 years.
