Broad daylight, killing all ambient with only a 430EXII? How

Exif intact. Underexpose the manual exposure by 4 or 5 stops, shoot with a wide angle 2 ft from the car, the light fall-off is as drastic as you see...

The car IS parked in the garage... with the garage door open.

My first engagement shoot. Let me know how I did. These were all shot with an Elinchrom Ranger and Mola Demi.

Loving this one. Did you use a gel? If so, which one?

Her pupil is too wide open. Try placing a small spotlight behind you, far enough that it doesn't affect the exposure. The second, tiny catchlight can be then easily removed in post-processing.
