Portrait: Megan

My friend Megan was kind enough to pose for some photos for the Strobist Boot Camp Assignment. After an uninspiring first round, we added the umbrella as a scene prop, and that made all the difference. I made several photos that I liked, including this one. Unfortunately, one of the best shots of the day ended up over-exposed by 3-stops as I set the flash to optimize for Scott’s setup, and I forgot to adjust my camera to match. If I mange to save that one, I’ll post it here for comments.

Here, Megan has the last bits of daylight directly in front of her, and a Speedlight high and 45-degrees to her left bounced into a silver umbrella.
