I have added another momentous piece of equipment to my arsenal - a speedlite. More commonly known as a big, honkin' flash that attaches to the top of your camera.
I bought one for my Mom for her birthday and of course we had to break them out on someone. Enter my cousin, Molly. She was free on Saturday afternoon for a little while, so we invited her over for a little sesh.
She was a great subject and didn't mind being photographed. I mean, she's BEAUTIFUL so there's not much to nit pick about, right?
I also had some really cool software I'd been wanting to try, but needed some true portraits to give it a workout... How about some purple eyes?
I love this photo because the smile is as genuine as it gets.
Molly also has a really cool tattoo of an owl on her forearm. I had to get a shot of it. I also got to work out the new lens I posted about recently. See that blurred out Molly in the background? Yep - my fancy lens at work :)
I hope you all had a splendid Thanksgiving and were as fortunate as I was to spend it with friends and family. With a little one, it makes the Holidays far more enjoyable!
