Friday Faces with Scott

Canon 30D
Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8l
Shutter Speed 1/6
Aperture f/8.0
ISO 200
flash and curtain flash

This is my cousins daughter Maggie. I had the privilege of watching her and her brother at basketball practice tonight. Maggie made "40 goals" and couldn't have been prouder.

It gave me the opportunity to try a little fancy flash work. Though I'm not really happy with this shot, I really like the idea. I set my camera up so that it flashed right away and at the shutter close. The effect is the ghosting, showing motion and in Maggie's case, the fantastic mane of hair. Connection made!

I want to tell you all more about this but I'm standing in my cousins kitchen and I think I'm going to be social. Thanks for checking in and have fun Brandi!



  1. Love this shot!! I want to learn how to do more with my flashes. Jonny is so much better at all that technical stuff then I am. I have a hard enough time settting up my speedlights in commander mode, let alone playing around. What a neat movement shot.

  2. Way cool! Again a bit spooky & yes, ghost like. She looks as though she's trying to out run demonic possession. Run Maggie Run! Love to hear more about the technique and see what you think is a better shot.

  3. I love the way you captured motion yet again. Not an easy thing to do I imagine. Simply stated, very cool!!
