I worked with Sarah Jensen (Mayhem #1021568) again, she's a lot of fun to work with.
Strobist - Main light was the sun, camera right, and I used the Orbits ringlight and my SB900 for fill. I think I should have accentuated the sun with a strobe and unbrella for more dramatic lighting....maybe next time.

My niece Gabrielle helped me practice some lighting.
Strobist Info - SB900 with shoot thru umbrella high and camera right....SB600 with STU camera left and behind (it was suppose to be the rim-light, but she turned around.)....sun as a hair light above and camera left. I exposed for the sky and underexposed half a stop to darken the background so my niece would pop out.

I almost forgot about this...a quick food shot to get it in for Strobist 2nd Assignment.

Nikon D300 with 50mm 1.8 lens set to 1/200 at F2. SB900 with Lumiquest III small softbox behind and above subject. I pointed it more towards the camera to get the falloff in the background. I also use a boom cymbal stand with a swivel holder as a poor man's c-stand with an SB600 and Orbits Ringflash on axis for fill. Finally, a little tinfoil on the table in front for more fill and umph (technical term).
