Angela and the black background.

Angela was very patient while I fooled around for a couple of hours trying different lighting and looks. I've been in awe of Dan Winter's portraits for a while now, and I was determined to get close. Unfortunately I failed dismally, but I managed to stumble across a few other ideas in the process. It seems that the quality of light is totally different when I just used the feathered edge of the light as opposed to focusing it straight at the subject. Pointing the flash straight up, and just illuminating Angela with the falloff. A ringflash would have got me part way to the effect I was looking for, but the kids will complain if I put them on yet another diet so I can afford to buy more photo stuff.
