Day 193

I got some pictures of Rose! She’s one of the twins from around the corner, and she’s a little sweetie. But she often gets really goofy in front of the camera. Today she was just calm and easy, and I got a few quick shots that I like. I think her mom will like them too.

Rose 4
(With bare off-camera flash – to flashy for my taste, but the background DID darken! Yay!)

 Rose 1
(This looks a little like a mug shot because it’s straight on and there’s no “movement”, but she’s such a cutie!)

Rose 2
(Look at that smile. That’s gonna be dangerous!)

 Rose 3
(I know there are all sorts of technical problems with this shot – hair in her face, her hand in a weird position, the strange crop of her pants – but I still love it. Her expression is classic Rose, and the wind in the hair doesn’t bother me.)

Well, you've confused me with your HSS, lol, but way to go! I don't know how your doing it, but ya are!

If you want to darken the background even more, start dropping your aperture (5.6, 8, 11)

Though at 1/3000 like you mentioned, ISO 100, your background would need f/2.8 to be proper, and everything above that should under expose it some. Assuming full sun

I'll just let Eric tell you all the mumbo jumbo tech stuff I'm just gonna say Rosie is a cutie and you definately captured her personality and I love the last one.
