14326 It was a pretty drab grey day, so I thought an ideal time to play with some speedlites. Unfortunately 2 mins of being in the garden I had only just got set up and started balancing lights and Andrew fell into the pond and I had to stop shooting.

Speedlight at rear in shot providing 'sun' + speedlite shooting through umbrella camera left providing fill.

Love this shot! I really need to start using my flash more..maybe a monthly assignment?

That is a great idea, Kat!

Richard -- love the thinking here and it looks like you pulled off a faux sun! Bravo! really cute shot too! Sorry Andrew took a splash....but then again, it will be a fun memory for him too! :-)

Sorry bout the splash as well - this is WONDERFUL play Richard. You had me fooled as well w/that fake sun.

Nice work Richard. Good thinking to enhance the weak sun with a flash.
