Portraits In The Park, Bright Sun, Flash Fill (Pics)
Apr 8, 2012

My daughter and husband requested I take some portraits of them in celebration of the ten year wedding anniversary. I have taken portraits of my daughter since she was a baby so she is very comfortable when I have a camera in hand. We went over to a local park on the river bank and found a nice spot. We had a clear sky so the sun was pretty bright with reflections off the water so I used flash fill. I arranged them with the sun mostly on their back side with their fronts shaded.

I used my A900, 24-70 f/2.8 ZA lens and HVL-F58AM flash. I feel the HVL-F58AM (staright on) did a nice job of fill-in in these conditions. All images were hand-held, RAW, ISO 100, 1/250 sec, f/5 and various zoom lengths. I post processed the RAW images in PS CS6 beta.
