An image I’m particularly proud of, even though it was just a test shot I fired to test the light before shooting our Christmas magnet images (more about those later). I shot completely on manual: manual camera settings and manual flash settings. The reflection of the photographer and his mud room in the window was just an added bonus.

ISO 100, 1/80s, f3.5, 50mm, flash bounced off the ceiling, 1/4 power (if I remember right)

  3. thanks, ashley!

    oh marina, now you just scared the pants off me! i’ve only used manual focus a couple of times, but only, only on a static subject. using it on a real person is terrifying.
