Racquel on the Bench 0411 sm

I wanted to test some Strobist lighting techniques, using a DIY snoot & a Grid Spot combo out in the bright bright midday sun of a Phoenix Summer day...just cuz I had nothing better to do with my time...

Ariza Nights from Model Mayhem answered the casting call and we spent a couple of hours in the heat at Sahuaro Ranch Park in Glendale AZ with me testing various combinations of settings on both my 430EX Speedlight and Canon 40D.

This is the first processed image with more to come as time allows.

Strobist: Shot with a 70-200 f/2.8 L USM at f/10 1/320 shutter speed. My DIY gridspot/snoot attached to the 430EX which is at full power, camera right set just to illuminate her face as she lounged on a park bench. It's almost as if I planned it that way...
