I just got my cybersync's the other day, and wanted to try out a little off camera flash so before I try out my 2 year old that won't sit still, I tried a friend of mine. C&C would be much appreciated.

Haha, I can tell from the bokeh that you used a 50mm 1.8. But I think it looks quite nice. The only thing I find unappealing is a slight shadow starting from your chin off to camera left.

Ya, I guess I should have used my reflector that I had resting at my feet.:rolleyes:
Oh well, it was all for practice, and now I know that I will need to use it next time.
Thanks for the comments, much appreciated, and helpful.:D

You're going to get those sorts of shadows with directional lighting - IMO (FWIW), that's one of the reasons to do the directional, off-camera lighting - to avoid flat lighting.

I don't find the shadows in this photo to be objectiionable - they are soft enough that you can see some detail through them. One improvement I would have liked to have seen is a little more light (spill, maybe) on the wall behind him to better seperate his hair from the background.

It's all good in my book.

the WB looks a tad off to me. His skin looks cool. Perhaps a bit of warm up will help?? or it could be me!

Thanks for comments, I was actually thinking of using a hairlight when I do my family shot.
I am sure the WB is off, I just left the camera in auto because I wasn't actually trying to get any keepers.

Thanks again,
DAve

I agree that the shadows are a little distracting. A bounce card on camera left would have probably given enough fill to make this look really nice. I also would have liked to see more light on the background. Yeah, the bokeh is nice, but a little dark for me.
