  1. Morning Barbara,

    This is exactly what I’m doing at this stage in my photography journey. Learning how to light the subject with an off-camera speedlite without overexposing.

    I need to buy additional gear, like a light stand and a white umbrella. Meanwhile, I’m practicing taking test shots using my wife as a model. She has been very patient and kind. I can’t thank her enough.

    Soft lighting is what I’m looking for. Still, there is a long way to go. But that’s okay, I’m a patient old man. 🙂



  2. Morning Linda,

    We commented the same thing when we were analyzing the picture. Most of the time my wife has a very serious demeanor. Smiles on rare occasions.

    We were very satisfied with this picture. She has a girlish attitude and we loved it.

    Taking portraitures is not an easy job, albeit it’s very interesting and challenging.

    Thank you for your comments, Linda. They mean a lot to me.
