Day 172: What’d You Say?

I was practicing portraits today. I wanted to do a couple of things: 1) play with direct side light and 2) play with cropping. For this shot, my flash is in a shoot through umbrella and aimed directly at the right side of her face. I ended up moving it a little in front of her, which is what you see in the resulting shot, to light some of the front of her face. The cropping I played with in post. For some reason, I didn’t feel like I could get this type of crop with my 50mm. I’ll have to play with that more.

1/125 sec @ f/9, 50mm, ISO 100

Light Specs:
Flash: 1 Canon 430 EXII @ 1/1
