Knell: the stroke of a bell tolled at a funeral

I don't own a bell, and my creative energy is focused so much on lighting right now I couldn't spare brain power figuring out how to photograph sound. So you get some somber processing of my ear with earrings I'd likely wear to a funeral (which I hope I don't have to do for many, many years).

I have been reading Strobist all day, and my head is spinning. I successfully bribed my friend for the photoshoot (DSS idea #2), and the lighting is what will make the shot. I bought my flash this weekend. Yeah, we'll see how a total newb does with a multi-light set-up. I'm nervous and excited all at once.
