On assignment today for the District Weekly. The location was a 10 acre wholesale garden grower in Long Beach (who knew?!), The Garden of Eva.
The light wasn't the best (1pm, summer sun beating straight down). I decided to put into practice what I was playing with at my brother's graduation. I put my flash on the TTL cord, set the camera to -1.3 and the flash to +2 and held the flash with my hand. The woman, Annika, was a great sport but had a wide brim hat. I had to angle the flash so the light would get under the brim and still create some nice sculpting.
