    This was my first "Portrait" session with someone other than family. My friend wanted some pics of her and her daughter so I took these for her. I had brought an SB900 with an umbrella but it didn't fire for any of the pics, user error, I was in su4 mode instead of regular remote and my on camera flash set to commander was triggering it with the preflash, anyways. I think I still managed ok. Some C&C would be greatly appreciated.

    These are ok...but the daughter looks soft in all of them. You've stripped the EXIF data, so I can't see what f-stop you're shooting at, but I'm guessing it's too wide. The last one is the best, but I'd clone out the red pole coming out of the daughter's head.

    Thanks. I've added my settings above every picture. never noticed the pole growing out of her head, I'll watch out for that next time. So I shoulda been shooting at like f8 maybe?
