Test #2

Strobist Test, originally uploaded by fyrdog21.

We have a small cemetary behind the firehouse. I have wanted to take some images of the head stones for quite some time. Now that I am armed with strobes, wireless triggers and a digital SLR, I thought hey why not today? I was please that the wording on the head stone is readable. The tree just provides a little border (and yes I know it is overpowering the main subject).

I am not satisfied with the balance of the lighting, but hey this is only the third time I’ve tried this off camera lighting. With time (and project 365) hopefully I will get better and more creative. I do need to get some light modifiers, but that costs money. For now I will use what I have and make DIY modifiers as I need.
