Portrait at sunset (Nikon CLS shot)

Everyone needs a good photo of their mom, right? Well I went over there last night for dinner (grilled shrimp, mmmm) and there happened to be a great sunset. I usually have my photo gear with me and some extra lighting essentials. This was not a planned shoot and I am glad se was dressed well and willing to have here photo made in such short notice.

For this image I used my Nikon D700 and the SU 800 wireless flash commander to remotely fire a SB 900 in a small softbox on a boom stand. The flash had a -0.7 EV and the exposure was set for the sky. ISO 400 at f/4 with the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 lens. She really liked the photo, I hope you do too.
