89/365: Children

    Newer Older

    This is my first published shot with off camera flashes. I had many others strobist shots that turned out better, but none of my children being children.

    My children love to read. We are constantly walking past their rooms at night and finding them with a flashlight or some other lighting device reading. It is great.

    Strobist Info: 1 Gelled flash at 1/32 power held by my son. Triggered by CyberSync triggers.

    This is my "Children" entry to the 2009 Photo Challenge hosted by photochallenge.org.

    Grabbed the idea from a photo found on http://stephenzeller.wordpress.com/ quite some time ago. He executed it much better than I did.

    Sergio Mejia, { sheila }, and 56 other people added this photo to their favorites.
