Family Portrait '09


Family Portrait '09

Family portrait near our house in Ringwood NJ....(yes, this is New Jersey)
I lugged two strobes, stands, and umbrellas for this shot. Thanks to our friend Kim for taking it (otherwise, I would have had to lug up my tripod too)

Strobist - SB600 camera right with a shoot thru umbrella and an SB900 with the same on the left. I brought up two shopping bags with me and filled them with rocks to weigh down the light stands. Unfortunately one of them fell anyway and, of course, it was the expensive SB900!! It survived, though I'm thinking of making a flash case like the one for my iphone, to absorb some of the impact.
