A bit of strobist fun with my son, Joe

Joe finished his basketball practice this evening and came around the corner from our house for 30mins, to help daddy try out some new grids and a snoot.

This old sofa has been sitting in the street for two weeks now and hasn't moved, so it was time to get a cool shot of the boy on it.

It was cold out but I tried to be as quick as I could. Tried a few setups. One like this but with strobes behind the sofa looked good but this one totally worked. I like the depth of the shadows without the sofa being backlit.
