??? Its just an old tree trunk used as a prop and its an atraction in this park/farm. Kids love to play in it and its definitely a good photo prop as well. There is a plaque on it but never bothered to read it. I'm not sure what you are getting at but the trees in the park are not like this.

Sorry for my obscurity. It looks like a lot of fun for the kids. To me it looks like the only way such a trunk could be hollowed out like that is by termites when the tree was alive. We have some serious termites in northern Australia but I've never seen a trunk as hollowed out as that one, probably because our trees die earlier and get burnt up in annual fires. Nothing wrong though!

No worries I just didnt understand where you were coming from.. I believe the gutting of this tree was man made not 100% sure...

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.

Flash is good. Ned’s to be gelled


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

I had less than 10 minutes to find a spot, take the shots and get the kids back to the rest of the band. These are our seniors in the marching band. I took a few photos from a ladder and then a few from ground level. Had sun to their backs to eliminate squinting and had Neewer Vision5 TTL flash on full power. Took first shot and they were dark, so I ripped both panels out of the 24” soft box, only to realize after 2nd shot, I forgot to power it on. So, these were lit at full power, bare bulb in the soft box. I did use Ps to remove light poles (large property ones) and people in the distance near building, plus, because the sky was so bright, I touched it up and made it a little bluer.

Way to go lighting everyone well! That ain't easy!

You just gotta watch out for people behind like the girl 2nd in on the right. I remmeber trying somthing like this and had two people almost completely in shadown behind people. Didnt notice until editing and kicked myself for it.

Thanks! Yeah, I was trying to move them around in the viewfinder “Joe, step right. Natalie, step left and lower your chin a little more. Padma, step forward a little, you’re in the shadow” (real names not used) as I’m laying on the ground trying to make sure eyes were opened, positions were good and the sun right in front of me, I could see she was in, but the shadows didn’t look too bad on a 3” screen. I also tried to lighten just that part in post but it looked too faked.
