Happy Blue Eyes

Recently I got in this Strobist thing (off camera flash photography). Flash photography has been a technique that I’ve always wanted to master and the Strobist website is a great source of tutorials, articles and forum discussions. I didn’t want to invest lots of money buying expensive flashes, so I bought some old flashes from various auction sites: they work great! Above is a picture of my daughter Fran that I took using a single flash, remotely triggered and bounced off the ceiling and wall. There is lots of stuff to learn for me, but I’m already happy with this one! If you watch closely you can even see the reflections in her eyes, which would have been impossible to achieve without using a flash since the room was badly lit.
