Well, as you’ll see, I’m still learning the ins and outs of flash and so this weekend is another of my attempts at the strobist assignments. It just so happens that this week was (at least in my opinion) the most difficult of all because it required balancing the flash with the ambient light to a produce a picture perfect photo. It means being cognisant of both the strength of the flash output, as well as the strength of the ambient light from the sun, and balancing them together to generate an evenly exposed image. Of course, many cameras have TTL (through the lens light metering) which takes away much of the guess work. But then again, it wouldn’t be much of an assignment if I let the camera do all the work, now would it? In these photos, all settings were set manually.
BJ was such a little angel, despite the cold. He loved playing in the grass and watching the waterbirds nearby. Most of all, he enjoyed eating the odd piece of bark on the ground. Daddy’s boy, eh?
