Day 71

I got my umbrella and light stand today! Whoohoo!! And the lovely angel who sent them to me also included a wireless flash trigger, so I was able to play with my new setup right away!! I was so excited! Here is my first shot using a strobe and umbrella (by the way, the boy in the back is out of focus because he wasn't originally intended to be in the shot - he snuck in)...

first strobe shot

I'm looking forward to playing with this a lot more, but not tonight.

Looks good Elli, I wish I could start playing with lights, but they still intimidate me :)

Lights really intimidate me, too! Good for you for playing! The light here looks pretty good to me. :)

Wow 71 days already? Good job Elli. Have fun playing with the lights. They are pretty frustrating to me.
