5D Mark II
f/13
1/200
ISO400

Could have dropped the ISO and increased my aperture... but this was a quick and dirty shoot.

Nice job GenuineRolla,

I like the cool outdoor feeling of the photo, with the white balance to match!

Welcome back!!!

Very nice. I like the tones -- very 70's! I like where you went with the crop, too, putting her on the short side facing out. Lighting feels very natural.

My first post in ocf. I haven't had time yet to read this string from the beginning.. but hopefully will find where I'm going wrong. I was using a 580EXII bouncing off a silver umbrella. .. 5D wb set on daylight.. and I needed to warm it up in LR . .. even so, I still feel like the horse is blue and it lacks overall pop. I need some fresh eyes on this. .. I feel like I've worried & worked this image so much that I can't see what wrong any more. What do y'all think?

I think your answer would be to cut way down on the ambient light -- increase the shutter speed most likely -- so that the flash lights the horse/boy and gives more contrast to the background. Just my thoughts.

Yes, I think its a great shot. The background is a little distracting. Since you probably cant shoot it again, you might mask off the background and bring it down a couple stops until its darker than the foreground. I personally dont see anything wrong with a little vignette in this shot, very subtle darkening of the edges.

Cute boy

Hello Gang. Here is an image I used from a video I put together on outside location lighting. The shot was taken around noon but I'm standing in the shade to avoid the harsh light of the 12 o'clock sun. Only one flash was used, bare bulb.

If you would like to see how this shot was made you can watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com …8JmY&feature=ch​annel_page (external link)
This may help answer many of your questions on off camera lighting.

:cool: Nice video.
