Day 131 – Backyard Portraits

So it’s Mom’s last day of her vacation, and I wanted to send her home with a couple of good portraits. It’s been many years since we did anything other than just simple snapshots, and besides, when am I NOT looking for an excuse to use the really good lighting gear sitting in my garage?

So, we goofed around and came up with some decent shots we could both live with. It was fun, and now I have a great pic of my Ma and me. 🙂

Tech info:
Canon 5D Mark II | 1/125 sec. | f/8.0 | ISO 100
Gorgeous weather
Alien Bee AB800 at camera left, shot into a 64″ Parabolic Light Modifier with diffuser at 1/4 power.
