A Photo Challenge: 30 Photographs in 40 Days…

As of today, I’m officially hooked up for flash photography… And so very excited! Even though I have a lot to learn about the subject, I figured why not have some fun before getting down to the nitty-gritty.

For this self-portrait (B&W version can be found here), I used my 40D, 5omm f/1.4, and new Speedlite 430EX II. My camera was set in manual mode, 1/100 sec, f/2.5, and ISO 800 (forgot to change that back from the other night). To make things interesting, I decided to use my “star-eight” filter as well.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. What do you think? I would love your feedback!
