On my own with off camera flash...

So after last weekend's successful introduction to the world of Off Camera Flash, I decided to continue that learning process and made arrangements to take a friend out for a photo shoot this afternoon.  I managed to find a nice little stand, clamp and shoot through umbrella from Vistek. 

In my own mind, I thought that I had thought through the shoot...  The position of the OCF in relation to the sun (it was there, although it was a rather cloudy day) and the poses I envisioned for the model.  In reality, I need a lot more practice in doing this.  While there are some good pictures, they were nowhere near the level I feel I achieved at the workshop (those photos needed relatively no editing after the fact).

Still, there were some nice photos.  Thanks to Christie for modeling and giving up her afternoon.
