Dark House, Dark Patio–Speedlight Works!

The monarch butterfly chrysalis was on the stone pillar outside, and I missed capturing it in a picture before it got dark. If I’d taken a picture of it during the day, the side of the pillar wouldn’t have been as interesting, and that adds to the composition. Using the speedlight caught it perfectly.

The horses I had taken pictures of without the speedlight and you can’t see their real colors at all. Using the speedlight here, it’s true to life. Even the impromptu picture of my daughter and granddaughter turned out much better than I ever could have gotten with natural lighting. She would have been gray, and so would the baby. Ignore the composition. The window behind her doesn’t exist. Just ignore it. Baby was trying to get away, so she’s not fully in focus. But I was impressed with the colors. 🙂

The soft boxes (soft light boxes) came in yesterday, but I picked up my son and his girlfriend at the airport, and you wouldn’t believe this, but I haven’t taken one picture yet!!! I’ll have to do better today. Tomorrow for sure, but I’ll need to set up the soft boxes and see how they work.

And I reached 60K on the book yesterday!!! I’ll be lucky to get my blog done this morning before we start running again. 🙂

Have a fun day!!
