Got your attention? :er:
This is my little sister and our niece.
Both shot with my 75-300 lens.
nice shots mike! where is that?
These were shot out at an acreage, they have a fantastic man-made pond complete with multiple waterfalls & tons of stone.
They are wonderful. I like the backlight highlighting your niece's hair. What kind of light did you put against it?
Camera mounted flash (430EX)
That's all? Worked FINE!
I'm saving on the 580EX and until I shall have the money scraped together, I have ... nothing. (On-Camera flash, sure, but...)
Using flash while shooting outdoors is great, IMO. It takes a bit of power to shoot subjects who are farther away...but the 430 and 580 especially are pretty good.
The trick is being able to keep the shutter speed under the camera's max sync speed (1/250 in my case). It's a trade off though...because if you stop down the aperture to get the shutter speed lower...the flash has to work harder because of the smaller aperture.
Both the 430 & 580 had 'High Speed Sync'...which allows you to shoot at shutter speeds higher than the max sync speed....but this greatly reduces your range and uses up the power fast.
I think these were shot at F8 and 1/250.
Awww cute! Great pics!
OMG she's adorable!!! What a beautiful smile.
Nice control on the backlighting. I particularly like #2. Nice work.
