It's also bolted to the concrete! There are rows of camera stands out there that have sat unused since the shuttle retired. A lot of the tripods I've been bringing just get set up in the same place as the stands (see first photo), so I may as well put the stands to use.

Camera #3 looks to have a super portable and collapsible tripod . . . not!

That's a Tiltall Tripod. (external link) Great tripod that I've used for over 50 years.

The ladies wanted to have some outdoor photos of the girls today, it was nice out, and we happened to have 8 24" diameter balloons with helium. Got to put it to use right? We have a 7 year old and a 4 year old who are having their birthdays. We tend to do this every year with similar setups, though we finally outgrew the tutus I think (thank goodness!).

Gear & Lighting:

The sun acting as our back/hair light. We love to have the sun on our backs!
Balancing two potential shadow directions is tough!
Rovelight 600B in HSS mode with a Yongnuo YN622 transceiver via PC Sync port (approximately 1/1 and down to 1/4 power at a distance of 8~10 feet from subject, and 8~12 feet high on the stand)
For light exposure, I started at 1/4th and would move the light forward/backward a little to avoid having to touch the light and leave it up high
If I needed a lot of light and distance, I just went to 1/1 and backed it it up a little.
PhotoSEL 10 inch Reflector (cheap fireball; efficient in full sun and can still shoot at F2 with a 600Ws)
I use this these days in the wind without worry, way up high, I take a single test shot to see if I'm in the ballpark, and adjust output by moving the stand forward/backward mostly.
I can get to the exposure I want with a single test shot generally, then I know the distance to subject and I'm set for the rest of the time.
Cheetah Boom Stand (this setup with the stand and the reflector allow me to get the light up and high and not worry about gusts of wind to knock it over without help)

24" diameter balloons. One girl is turning 7. The other is turning 4. We are really glad we did not go with the 48" balloons, because 8 of the 24-inchers were really hard to keep down!

Canon 5D Classic (Shot manual, 1/4000 ~ 1/6400s, F2~F2.5, ISO 50 for most of these)
I meter in manual via evaluative for the sky, to try to retain some shadow area and not completely lose the sky, for a middle-road approach. I re-meter if the light changes significantly. It's ok if its off by just under 1 stop if you're shooting in RAW.
Yongnuo YN622 Transceiver
Canon 135 F2L
Canon 35 F2 IS

Note: Most of this is in practice & theory. In reality, I often have to just "go with it" because kids do not really follow instructions or stay in a spot. We do two good shots, then play around and be silly. Then try another shot. Then let them play and do what they want. If we try to do too much structure, they melt down. It's 95F degrees and we are all drenched in 20 minutes of this. It's not fun for anyone, so we have to make it fun for them.

You must have serious termites there. I thought our Mastotermes darwiniensis were bad!

Great work!

I think the flash power is a bit too high. I can tell that flash was used.

I would lower the power of the flash to balance the ambient light and flash. I like to add light, but I don't want it to be noticeable. Just my taste.
