Practising my off camera flash techniques with my latest model, Senor Alejandro. Gave him this hat and took some shots of him as he played around with it.
I had to put the hat on him about 20 times and rush back to position to take the shot but most of the time he took the hat of forwards so it shielded his face, then at last he took it off sideways and I got this.
I love this one. The position of the hat and the way he has his hand made me think that he was tipping his hat in an old fashioned mannerly way like in a western.
The flash and umbrella are set at the same height as him and pretty much parallel to him to his left hand side about 18-24 ins away set on quarter power.
