Heya,

The weather has been nice, so wanted to try to do some July 4th photos of my daughter as a yearly thing. She's only 2.5 years old, and turning 3 this year in October. I planned it for a late day, 8pm actually here in Florida, as that's when the sun finally drops just a wink below the tree horizon in my yard (there's still sun out well towards 9pm here right now!). I didn't want fully sun, but wanted the bit of glow from it as natural light in the environment as I was not going to use HSS nor a ND filter for this, just good old fashioned sync speed, and meter the light to make it work as just a tad above what fill light would be. I had metered the light the day before and knew that I could shoot at 1/200s, F2.8 and ISO 100 and get a pretty general ambient exposure of the scene in my front yard that I was going to use, without it blowing out the sky (it did in some cases still), and to get a decent ambient exposure that allows a little pop of the subject with a light by being a slightly under-exposed ambient. 8pm it was.

The setup:

Florida, 8pm. Sun just starts to drop below tree horizon, on camera left.
My front yard, we freshly had the field moved & baled so it was clear.
A little wooden crate we use sometimes that we made & stained.
Some left over hay that missed the baler used to just add a little mess to it all.
A huge watermelon that came from a local field that we saved for this, good and ripe too.

Camera: Canon 5D classic
Lens: Tamron 90mm F2.8 VC Macro
Ambient Camera Settings: 1/200s, F2.8, ISO 100
No ND filters, no filter at all used. Just good old sync speed.
Transceiver: Yongnuo RF603c

Light: Rovelight 600B (no gels used)
Modifier: Neewer 47" Brolly Soft Box (so light weight and simple, I use this all the time these days)
Stand: Cheetah Boom Stand with counter weights (waters) & my typical nylon stake into the ground and bungee cord to anchor
Transceiver: Yongnuo RF603c
Light Meter: Sekonic L478D (metered F2.5 light with Rovelight at 1/64 power, with 1/200 & ISO 100 programmed)
Note: for metering, I wanted it just a bit over fill light, so I metered to F2.8 initially to match my aperture, then dropped it a bit more to be just below F2.8 to get it closer to fill.
No HSS used, no ND filters, etc. Just basic manual strobing.

A 2.5 year old kid.
Her mom to cheer and corral.
And a lot of hope.
Note: she was so cooperative, played with the watermelon and super expressive, it was so easy for once!
Note: She did all those cute hand positions herself with her mom cheering her on to pose. What a ham!

Looks like a fun shoot. But the images are SO tiny. I like the pose, framing and yellow splash from the first one best.

Awesome! Splashing paint sure makes do-overs difficult. :)

The sky is really throwing off the image since it doesn't match the depth of field. Just wondering why you decided to add it like that and not just shoot with more DoF while taking the shot. If I'm wrong and you didn't alter the image my apologies.

I couldn't get the ball as clear as I had hoped during the short attention span of my model and assistant (on a 90 degree sunny day), but we did have fun none the less with our first attempt at getting this shot. Next time I'll get even closer to my model (8 year old daughter), increase the shutter speed, and have her hold her club a little more towards the camera to show more of a follow through. I'll also ditch the reflector, instead of a green cast on the ball I in fact did get the white. I didn't think that part through.
