Maggie - blue sky

Shot not long before we spooked a horse with our flashes, causing it to throw it's rider. For some reason the rest of the group weren't keen on me asking the rider to do it again so we could shoot it....

Might still be a little underexposed for my liking, but the ratio between model and sky looks about right.

Strobist info: Canon 430EX in a brolly box camera left, Vivitar 285HV at 105mm, 1/16th to camera right, several feet back, gel'd with a 1/8th CTO gel (I think). Sun to left of model behind clouds.

    There seems to be a lot of light under her chin. Was that on purpose?
    Maybe less to give her more of a define chin line. But that’s jus my opinion.
    But I do like the balance between the model and sky it almost looks like a back drop.

    Thanks - combined effort with James.

    You may be right there. The light under the chin is from the brolly box which was indeed lower than the model (she was on a fence). Truth be told, this was the first session of three and we were only just getting our feet.
