I recently got a Nikon SB-800 speedlight and I'm still getting used to it. Today, I happened back by the old tractor that I had photographed last month and tried to get some shots of it again. It was about 4:30 P.M. and the tractor was in deep shade. Since I had photographed it from the front last time, I tried to get a new angle on it and thought that some shots from the drivers seat might be interesting. The dark/light presented some challenges. Here is what I did... 1. Camera details (ISO 400, 1/60, f/25) I dialed down the exposure 2 stops (-2.0EV) so I could get some color in the sky and hand held the SB-800 (with a diffuser on it) out in front of the camera just out of the picture (top, center). Focused on the "tank" of the tractor through the steering wheel. Overall it is darker than I would have liked it, and it is grainy (I should have lowered my ISO to 200), but it is my first attempt at using a flash like this. Any C&C? 2. Here is a horizontal format. Camera details (ISO 400, 1/125, f/25, -2.0EV) Of the two formats, I prefer the vertical one. Please feel free to leave C&C. BTW - the "PRO critique requested" is an idea I borrowed from Overread. http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/feedback-suggestions/162889-pro-critique-suggestion.html Let's see how it works. Thanks!
