Child Portrait Photography

Lucia Serene April 2011

I try not to post TOO many photos of my daughter because well you know, other people’s kids get a bit boring after a while… But here is my beautiful daughter in a portrait that I created today by the creek that runs past my home here in lovely Saunderstown RI. It was afternoon about 4:00 so the sun was behind her. I set my exposure to make the background exactly the brightness I wanted it and then put an umbrella up and to her right. With my speed light set at about 1/2 power. My exposure was 250th shutter F-stop 4.5 on my 85mm lens ISO 100

Here is a set up shot for you to see exactly where my light was
