U have to click on the picture icon (the yellow button with mts) and then paste your picture link into it.
And you're link is non-functional anyway.
You didn't post a pic.
so what could i have done better? i had a REALLY hard time keeping the sky from blowing out
was that taken with on camera or off camera flash?
you need a better angle, lower and to the right of him. the background is to clutter also. not much you can do about that i know but if it was just a sky i feel it would look better
Those ropes are really distracting also.
What do you mean by "blowing out". The sky looks pretty tame to me...
yes, off camera flash. 430 EX II, although it was on my camera because i dont have a cable or wireless triggers.
and about the cluttered background, there was no option. to the other side was worse (nasty bushes and volleyball net)
He means over exposing as in having a completely white sky with no detail at all.
i would try underexposing the background a little bit more, and maybe zoom the head on the flash in some so it doesn't illuminate as much of the foreground
Right... I understand that... but the sky looks fine. It looks like a normal light blue sky at dusk. Maybe I'm just missing something?
you're right, its fine in the picture. i was just saying it was hard to get it that way. majority of the pictures i took had blown out skies
