One 430 EXII set on the ground pointed up toward a white wall behind subject. Natural light, tungsten, and fluorescent filling in the face a bit. Could have used a longer shutter speed but I think it looks okay. How about you?

It's a start, but I don't think that the "Natural light filling in the face a bit." is enough. Add a bounce card near the camera, or move the wall light more to your rear.

I agree with that assessment. Thanks for the tips. This was shot at 58mm with a 24-105 on a crop so that adds to the info. a bounce card could be placed in a good spot.

Shutter speed is the least of your worries here. The lighting is flat. The white balance is off; subject looks a touch jaundiced. The tight crop doesn't work. Keep practicing.

Thanks for that comment. It was shot in RAW and I chose the WB so that could be a color problem with my monitor. Other stuff is good. Thanks for the C&C

Here is another one processed slightly differently. They both need some fill on the front I know that....

Fill flash is definitely needed. Or some way to bring up the light on the face. You can't safely do it with the shutter speed so try opening up the lens more. Not sure what you'll end up with if the flash is ETTL. If the flash is manual you should be fine.

More light on the face is an easy fix now - just brighten it up - raise exposure. The white just goes whiter.

I'd cool it down a bit too.
