Bringing Back the Light(s)

A Self Portrait
After a full Summer and Fall of shooting photos with nothing but natural light yesterday's Christmas Card Photos(see below post) inspired me to get back to my strobes. I love experimenting with my speedlites so I decided to make myself a new profile photo for Facebook and the like. I shot this with my 580exII up and to the left with a reflective umbrella and my 430ex low and right with a shoot-through umbrella to add some fill light. I'm holding my 'new' 1935 Kodak Junior Six-16 to make the shot a little more interesting.
Lighting portraits is my favorite thing to do with my camera and I'm looking forward to some of my upcoming portrait jobs.
