1st of all thanks for taking the time to click on my picture.
Last week I bought my 1st flash unit a Canon 430EX2. I thought I would try out some strobist action. I bought the relevant gear and took the kids down a local bridge.
I am really looking for constructive criticism about my technique etc.
This shot was taken with the 430EX2 camera right with a Reflective umbrella just above her head height. I think the flash was 1/8. However in all my excitement about trying it out I forgot to make a note.
The camera was 1/125 f4 50mm iso100.
My lens was a 24/105 so the lowest i could go was f4. If I wanted to expose the background more I guess I would just raise the iso or lower the shutter speed?
I suppose soon I will be buying more flash units in order to try and minimise those shadows etc... However for now I think I need to master just 1 unit.
