Used combination of my Vegabond mini and 300w strobe. Frist time with anything other then my speedlight lol.. now i think im hooked and want to use the strobe with my sekonic meter since im just now seeing how i can achiece better results then just the camera and natural light alone. I mean, id always want to use OCF, but this makes it so much more rewarding... still first time but had enough practice down at home to feel somewhat confident about it..

Not bad at all for first time. Did you use any type of light modifier?

Very nice for a first time shoot.

For critique, I would say images 1, 2 and 5 look a bit too blueish for my tastes, you might want to warm them up a bit. I'm not crazy about the way the girl is sitting in number one, straddling the mom's leg while wearing a dress, but of course shooting young children is a challenge and it doesn't really detract from the shot. It just looks a bit awkward to me though.

In shot three, with the girl leaning against the tree, the almost straight on on shot makes her legs look extremely short. I would shoot from the side just a bit more so you get her legs in the shot to minimize that effect. I like the general idea of the shot though. I see that type shot do the same thing with adult models, and never liked the short leg effect.

Hi Phughes, I took another look and those pics and added more warmth and yeah I like it better a little warmer. I think for whatever reason it was looking like it was making the yellow trees too warm but on 2nd look it really didn't do much so nice good suggestion!

Yeah the Fall colors can be challenging. Good work.

Beautiful pictures, the fourth would be better with a cleaner background. Great shots.
