That's beautiful gonzogolf. Do you mind sharing your lighting setup?

I'm happy to share my elaborate setup. Just kidding it was just a $12 shoot through umbrella softbox with a single 580exII in it. For this shoot i was using the YN622 triggers in ETTL mode with a bit of minus compensation, maybe 1/3 or 2/3 of a stop to provide fill light but not so much that it looked too obviously flashed. The Setting sun was behind her and slighty camera right to provide a bit of rim light. The flash was camera left a few feet away.

Thanks! I only wish the kids in my life would hold still for long enough that I could even contemplate setting up a stand & umbrella ;)

Easy setup and very nice shot.

One technique you might consider is using a monopod or one of the paint pole adapters and blackmail someone into assisting you. ETTL allows you have a lot of leeway for your light to be a bit closer or farther than ideal so an assistant waving it around is better than no flash at all or on camera flash. Also by keeping fairly close to balancing ambient means you have fewer concerns about the softness of your light source. Soft light from a big source is nice but since your shadows have little depth they arw less noticable.

I appreciate your suggestions, thank you. Often I'm either wholly or largely responsible for supervising my nieces when I'm with them, so just making sure they're safe and happy has to be number one priority as they're still very young. The camera is usually around my neck with flash attached, but photography has to be a secondary thing. None of my family is at all interested in (serious) photography, so even when they're around trying to persuade them to take on the role you describe wouldn't be easy. They do like my results though..

When photographing friends' children I've sometimes been able to enlist their assistance, mainly with posing though rather than lighting gear. Those kids are mostly older too. I need to remember to turn down my ETTL flash exposure a bit, as you did, to avoid that "flashed" look - which, I've recently been reminded, can happen even with fill flash in daylight.
