So I wanted to try getting a photo quick and on the fly. Sort of. Asked Nick to pose for me last night, we used one flash with an umbrella and our curtains as a background. Those are very shiny and reflective. I had to get Nick very far away from them and had to darken them in the final photograph. But I think I got a nice photograph of him. Nick has a new love. He got a bass guitar. I am going to have to get a photo of him with that. Don't know if I'll hold myself to the one light theory though.
I used the 50mm, shot 1/200th sec at f1.7. I found out high speed sync works wireless last night. I think that will come in handy.
