81/366-- Happy Birthday To Me--(sooc smoke)

So it was here the best day of the year March 21st and the real start of the spring equinox. Danny woke that morning and decided that they would take a trip into the city and spend the day there---now this is where his birrthday took a change before they even got to Toronto on the ramp on allen road in toronto the car stalled and just wouldnt start... we had to push it off to the side tried a few things and no luck --we were broke down at 2pm stranded --so we called a tow truck 80 dollars to the garage got the car looked at and guess what it was the timing belt that snapped---this happened to us in Toronto 3 years ago same thing on an off ramp) --so another 576 dollars 92 cents later and over 7 hours stranded and waiting in some random part of toronto thats how i spent my birthday.... (true story) some would say that sucks and it was bad luck but hey i got a to ride in a tow truck, we finally found a store that sold tams favorite Filipino snack "ding dongs" and when we did get home i had the best cake ever.. for real im so thankful and just so happy that life is this great --I thank my parents, Tam and all the people who are part of my life in some way or another ..your all awesome! Its gonna be a great year ahead...


side note on the back top right of the image there was a little white orb......


Specs and Storbist

Sb-800 1/40th power behind cake (full CTO) to keep the glow look from the candles

Sb-800 1/128th power camera back left(half CTO)

Both flashes were fired via nikon cls

Smoke is Sooc Extra smoke was waved in from Tam on the side

This photo was done self portrait on self timer and i had a lot of testing to get it right before i lit all the candles and to balance my flash cause i knew i only had time for maybe 3 attempt. This is how it worked out.
