Compete with the sun?

02nd August 2014
I am breaking from the landscape again this evening, which may not suit the "Mayo" fans but the photographers among you might enjoy this one.
Yesterday I got a new flashgun and really wanted to put it to the test. So I asked the children next door to model for me and tried a bit of off camera flash. The real test was to see could the flash compete with the sun if it was in the picture. So to do this kind of image you must first calculate the exposure for the landscape, then adjust the flash for the foreground , I think you will agree the flash worked!
Thanks to Lucy for posing, and to her brother Charlie for holding the light stand for this image. Tomorrow I will post a picture of Charlie in full flight!!
