My Calvins

Susan K came by my place for some stuff neither of us had tried before. My first time shooting with direct flash and a bracket.

45mm · f/5.0 · 1/200s · ISO 100

Really nice tones Kyle. Next time you're playing around with direct flash, try zooming your flash tighter than your lens diameter (eg. if shooting with a 50mm, zoom the flash to 85 or 100), it gives you that paparazzi spotlight effect that you see all over the current viral marketing or mags like Vice or Monster Children.
I used that technique for the lead image in my recent article https://fstoppers.com/audio/does-music-soothe-savage-photo-editing-breas...
