Sunset Portraits

     Tonight I took my son out to do some sunset portraits!

     We started about half an hour before sunset, but it got dark fast!

     He is quite a goof ball and doesn't need too much coaching for his poses.  The hardest part is getting him to stay in one spot long enough to take a few photos.  I'd take a few photos and then the moment I'd step over to adjust a flash, or change a setting on my camera, he'd be gone!

And one of his cheesy poses!

If you're interested in the Strobist information, here was my setup:
    All manual settings - ISO 800, F 5.6 - 8, 1/80 - 125
    Yongnuo 560 Speedlight - high and to the camera's left - Full Power shot through an Umbrella with a 1/2 CTO gel.  Fired optically by the other flash.
    Cobra 240 Speedlight - On camera Right, even with my son - 1/2 power, full CTO Gel, triggered by Youngnuo RF602 radio triggers.

Awww! I love these! They're really great, even aside from the adorable little subject you have there! ;) Thanks for including the setup info! :)
