7/365 Hair Flare

I ordered a flash last week and it still hasn't arrived! Sooo, I asked my very good friend James if he'd let me borrow one of his as I've been itching to use one. He said yes of course :)


I'd jut like to point out I'm new to flash and don't have a clue.

So I set my camera up on the tripod not having a clue what I'm doing, turn the flash on, took the first shot and BANG! The shot looked pretty cool. I must admit it wasn't the lighting I wanted but who cares :) So I changed the settings a little took a couple of silly shots and then this idea came to me.

Why don't I frantically shake my head from side to side and see what happens.

And the 5th shot here it is!


And you know what Ryan?


I LOVE IT! I love the face I'm pulling I love the movement in my hair I love the composition. I can honestly say whole heartedly that I'm proud of this shot. Which is the first one for my 365. Also I've even surprised myself in that I've managed a week. Who knows if I'll make a another but right now I'm just so happy with this shot.


I may not even take a good photo for todays 365 nor the next but thats ok because we all have good and bad days and its not all going to be this good. So I'm just appreciating this good one :)


I hope you all love it as much as I do.


Thank you James for letting me borrow your flash and stand, I couldn't have got this shot otherwise :)
