I took the above picture last night while on a walk with my family. It was dark, and I knew I needed to use some flash, but I also knew that the worst thing I could have done was to put the flash on my camera and shoot straight on. The solution to getting a good shot was easy. I asked my wife to hold the flash about 45 degrees left of where I was standing and had her point it directly at my daughter, Alison. A simple shot became a great shot instantly. No magic, no tricks, no fancy processing.
I would love to hear what you think of the shot. Feel free to comment here, on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter. I’m looking for more followers, too. Sign up now and join the party.
