3rd place
Evie is curious and a little apprehensive of the strange silver umbrella with the flashing light. An old Minolta 5400HS with its dedicated diffuser is placed in this (test) shot to see if I can get it to fire in a legacy mode. It does not fire, serving here purely as an impromptu prop, perhaps also a little apprehensive of the Sony HVL-F58AM, its replacement.

Notes: A900 with the HVL-F20AM as a wireless controller is triggering the HVL-F58AM firing into a 5ft reflective umbrella, providing the sole light source. A 5ft rectangular Westcott collapsible reflector (silver surface) positioned on the opposite side is providing fill. White paper background hanging off Manfrotto wall-mounted supports.
