Hi. I finally got my strobist kit together, and wanted to try a few practise shots of my daughter. This one turned out pretty cool I think. Strobist info: one SB28 camera left, shot through white umbrella, 1/2 power, ISO 100, f/8, 1/250 sec, one SB28 behind my little girl, snooted 1/4 power aimed towards her upper back. Both flashes fired with Pocketwizards. Feel free to comment on my first published "strobist" shot...

I like it. Very strobist-esque. Reminds me of that example with the hockey player on the site. I'd say her ear is a little too bright.

Lighting is great.

Cutting off a soccer player's feet is a bit like cutting off a ballerina's toes, I think.

Very nice shot! I too think the shot should crop a bit more loose.

Somehow the odd shape of the ball keeps getting my attention. She must be super strong :)

Great shot although i agree about the crop being a bit close to her feet. I think the ball is a bit flat to :p

Very nice shot. Makes me wish that I would have taken this hobby up years earlier when my young one was playing sports.

Looks like she is trying to tell you something "did you take the lens cap off?"

Thank you all for your nice comments! Actually, the ball belongs to my great dane, and he killed it after just a few hours, thats why it looks a little flat.... The shot isn't cropped at all, it was taken this way. But due to the temperature outside, I had to hurry, and the composition didn't turn out to good. But anyway, this was meant as an lighting excersice, and it was really fun.
