Sisters And Cousins At The Park

This shot was a little difficult for me to shoot from the very dark sculpture, the very bright sky, so I had to find the right balance between the two by exposing for the sky and using off camera flash for the black sculpture and kids. The other issue was enough flash to see some detail in the sculpture without blowing out the kids faces. I only used one flash but maybe a second would have been better at lower power for the kid in front, but time was an issue.

Anyhow I'm still happy the way it turned out.


Strobist: Canon EF 24mm-85mm @ 30mm F/9 ISO 160 and shutter 1/250, bare 580ex2 low on stand camera left @ 1/2 power.
