    I used a fill flash for these and I want to know... How can I use fill and avoid the pinpoint in the eyes?

    If you have a large reflector or umbrella, you can bounce off that. It produces great catchlights. I use a 43 inch 5-in-1 combo reflector, and bounce off the white surface.

    Thanks! I have that same reflector. I'm going to try that next time I go out.

    i think you did very well on these shots.
    my only complaint would be on shot#2.....the fence is a bit distracting.

    Thank you. I was trying something with the fence (which is actually one of those things on a baseball field, I can't think of what they're called) and I'm not sure I like it either. I'll post a few of the other ones I did and let you be the judge. I was trying a lot of new ideas out. I always use my own children first so I don't mess it up with clients. hehe. I'll go get those others... And thank again for the compliment. Coming from you it means a lot.

    You are very welcome Lacey :)

    I ,too, use my own children for "test" shots. I enjoy your shots because they are well composed and not overdone in post work. Some photogs go a little crazy with the post work.

    why is that?

    Did you shoot in direct sunlight or is that all the fill flash?? I think it looks too harsh, needs some diffusion.

    I don't like the behind the fence look, but I think I said that in another one of your posts.

    The first photo was shot in the shade, no fill flash. The second in the sun, flash at -1.7

    I like them :) What is this reflector people speak of? If outdoors like you are I would be interested in avoiding the pinpoint also..
    Sorry I'm very new to all things flash.
