    Fairly simple make. I think I may like the light it puts off. Opinions? This was just a quick snap as the sun was setting. He was not in the mood to take pictures at all.

    My daughter isn't a big fan of getting her picture taken and she's a girl, I never thought about how bad a boy would be!

    The angle of the source is too low. It needs to be higher.
