What an awesome shot!! Not that it is lacking any light, but Could you have used On Camera Flash???

Yeah looking back at it, I could have tried on camera flash. However, I have rarely been happy with on camera flash unless you can bounce it.

And thanks guys!!

Hey guys.

You should really have something like this in your bags. I agree with jay, On camera flash usually looks crappy. But you can get your flash off camera axis with one of these 3ft cords and your arm and solve lighting in tight spots like with one Jay was in. They have bailed my butt out a few times.

Ordinarily thats true. But if you are just using a hint of fill, with a good balance of ambient, the on camera results can be surprisingly good.

Especially with a HSS capable ETTL flash when used with Av/Tv mode. YN468EX is awesome

I just use a wireless trigger and speedlite setup with a LumiQuest SoftBox LQ-124. It has a cheap L bracket and some Velcro tape holding it all together. It also has a battery pack hooked up. I can hold it at arms length and it gives a somewhat soft light.

My fellow photographer holding this setup:

This was shot in Los Colinas at the canals. We were scouting locations for some family pictures for the executives of a company located in the area. They require a permit ($50 I think) to shoot in some of the areas (not sure if the earlier picture was in one of those areas).
We ended up shooting them right by the Kid Kraddick studio which is an area that does require a permit. We added it to our session fee.

Looks pretty good. However, the top of her for head, near where the hair parts looks like it has not received enough attention :)

That was a really dry rough spot. I was a bit afraid to smooth that any more than i did. Found this technique from a guy named calvin Hollywood on the kelby site. Reallt cool way to smooth. Lights are bright. we used silver for effect.

What's going on to the left of, and below her right eye? I see several bright/uneven spots.
