I got my daughter to sit for me (no easy task!). I had my 400d with built in flash which triggered an old Toshiba flash mounted on a tripod approx 1.5m from Ruby, about 1m to my right. Shot with Helios 28mm, f2.8 lens set at f16 (this doesn't show in EXIF as it's an M42 manual lens on the canon with adaptor). How did it come out? I know there's no backdrop - I have yet to get one...this is shot woith natural light from outside behind (although it looks dark, it's 9.30am). How could I improve it? In a few days I will have another flash gun which I can set up and light the background - would that help? Thanks in anticipation of your comments!
