These pictures composition wise they aren't great. I was just trying to learn on how to balance flash with ambient. These were both shot with a bare Vivitar 285hv handheld. I have a shoot this weekend and I will be using my flashes bare, so I'm trying to practice. I took more, but internet isn't very fast where I am and I can't upload them. I only adjusted curves and sharpened them in Photoshop.
