Tough Life

It certainly is a tough life for a little girl. I like the results you can get with one strobe and an umbrella. It's a good thing since I can't afford more strobes at this point. I wish I would have included her hand but I was working fast and just did not catch it.

This is a decent photo. Sun was setting and very low in the sky such that it was lighting these small flowers from the right and not contaminating the background.

This was my first time trying a snoot on the flash. Took some time trying to get the highlight on the background in a good spot. Still learning.

I have been learning about off-camera flash photography from the strobist website. What a great resource. Never had any interest in flash photography before looking at that. This came out good. It was in the afternoon and the sun was bright in the background but the boys were in the shade so I used the flash to bring him up to match the background.

I really like this one. Natural light. I'm happy with the composition and DOF.
