Mackenzie Senior ~ The Wet Pavement Alley

Mackenzie Senior ~ The Wet Pavement Alley

A senior shot for Mackenzie..

she wanted a shot similar to what i have done before and last nights rain presented a different pavement and we took advantage of this..

i had a difficult time with my cactus triggers, i originally wanted to place it behind Mackenzie and back light her (flash on the ground), but after 10 or more attempts, the back lighting didn't fire so i had to put the lighting on the stand..

i have done this before with a 430 and a cactus on the ground, but the combo of 580 and cactus didn't fire on the ground.. i have to investigate on this.. maybe more noise from the 580 speedlight that affects cactus radio waves more than the 430..

any of you guys have had this notion?

so the back lighting was a bare 580EXII at the lowest power 1/128 about 20 feet back..

front lighting was Elinchrom Quadra at the lowest power.. about 8 feet camera right..

her mother was right against the right wall of the alley.

the alley was not flat and we placed her on the slope just to cup her in place..

also i had to drag the shutter.. this probably the lowest hand held speeds i would ever go..

backlighting 20 feet from Subject @ lowest power bare
key lighting Deep Oct with quadra at the lowest power .4 camera right 6 feet
