    Here is a couple of pictures of my daughter I took in my back garden.

    Now... I used a tripod with the flash unit and white diffuser studio umbrella on it. I got everything set up before she was let loose in the garden.

    I learned something off Hamish the other night about taking some test shots and getting the desired light in the back round correct before turning on the flash and then adjusting that. I used to improvise and adjust as I was going along before. but now I know, sort on thing out first, then sort the other....

    Anyway, I got it all set up, got little ones shoes and coat on, she jump on the bike, I called her name.... looked.. SNAP!!! That one was the first shot I took. I'm extremely impressed with it and have Hamish to thank for the technique. All I done in PP was add a little vignette, sharpened a touch, and there we have it.

    The first picture was the best one I could get of her whislt chasing her around the back garden after daddy's camera novelty wore off. lol

    Thanks for looking

    I looked at the pictures before looking at your description, and was going to ask how you lit them!

    Very nice - brolly worked a treat to really diffuse the flash and create a great effect.

    Great looks from your model :)
