Merry Christmas…

From the Campbell family a very merry Christmas and our best wishes for the new year…

The lighting for this shot turned out pretty well – I had my Nikon SB-600 flash behind a shoot through umbrella on a light stand being wirelessly triggered to camera right to balance with the morning sunlight coming through the french doors behind the children.

NIKON D90 + 50.0 mm f/1.4 @ 50 mm, 1/60 sec at f / 4, ISO 200

The following was shot very late in the day (the setting sun behind the girls provides a beautiful golden glow) when all the girls took their scooters to the school for a ride. I shot the following in manual mode (letting Auto ISO do it’s thing) so I could get a fast enough shutter speed to attempt to freeze my daughter riding her scooter towards me whilst I had the lens racked out to almost maximum focal length.

NIKON D90 + 70.0-300.0 mm f/4.5-5.6 @ 280 mm, 1/320 sec at f / 5.6, ISO 1800
