Christmas Card Pictures

Uncategorized No Comments »

I am fortunate enough to be working with a great person who loaned me his professional camera flash setup so I could take family Christmas pictures.  It was the first time I had ever used a flash outside of the flash on the camera itself.  After a very quick how-to from my friend, I got everything setup in the house and started playing with all of the settings on the camera and the flash intensity.  I set the camera up to match the flash meter, but my pictures ended up too bright.  So, I started playing with all of the possible variables. The flash intensity, the fstop, the aperature, the shutter speed.  Finally, I think I got a wonderful first time professional picture of my girls.

The only problem I have with the picture is the location of the flashes themselves.  It would have been just a little nicer if I had the flashes in a better position to show one flash in the girls eyes.  Otherwise, I am exstatic with the performance of my models.  It’s amazing the difference between two 4 year olds and two 3 year olds in the ability to take direction and hold still for the camera.  Look out world!
