F13, ISO 200, 1/200sec
This was taken on a windowledge and there was simply very little space for me to get a focus and framing on the shot - the flash was offcamera on a cord (A 580M2 + lumiquest softbox) and I was holding that in my right hand and the camera (at normal aspect) in my left hand (it can be done but its not that comfortable and its darn tricky). I was very glad that I was using the 70mm and not the 150mm - I needed that light weight to get the focus!
I might have positioned the light from above if I got a second chance at a shot like this.
Any comments/crits welcome - thank you
