Daylight Fading


Snow Shot

My son Evan out in front of our house in Ringwood, NJ. He's giving me the typical 'today Dad!' look. If my wife was taking it he'd have a smile from ear to ear.

Strobist - Nikon D300 with 50mm 1.8 lens set to 'daylight' color balance to heighten the blue background and I was holding my SB900 at arms length camera left with a full CTO gel to compensate for the 'daylight' and warm him up (figuratively, I brought him inside right after this to literally warm him up)
I've wanted to try this technique for a while.
