Beautiful shot and lovely girl....... I am new on this board but I have been reading here for a while. I would like to know what method you used to spot focus. I am having a hard time in harsh sunlight. I tried using flash but was not succesful.

Would you (anyone) happen to have a link to Gordon's tutorial for perfectly exposed flash fill shots for harsh outdoors? I thought I had bookmarked it but cannot seem to find it anymore. Thanks in advance.

You using a flash... never thought I'd see the day :tongue: just kidding. Very nice shot! Well done! Must be nice to have all those lovely models at your side. Some guys have all the luck :rolleyes::smile:


I don't know how I've been here this long and never ran across Gordon's flash tutorial... I'm a set it on TTL and leave it kinda guy so this will help me get out of my comfort zone.

Hi Nute... This is a really great shot.... So lucky to have such lovely models who are willing and available. I noticed by the EXIF data it was shot at ~70mm, just wondering if you used your 35-70 for this shot...

You're right, she is beautiful... I'm slipping these days and 'mommy' is in the last month of pregnancy and not feeling comfortable enough to smile for pictures very often. :rolleyes: Thanks for your compliments though. :wink:

Hey Nute, very nice use of the flash indeed - great smile, great kid - however, if I may say something, you might either want to check your WB, which seems to be a little on the warm side and/or (if you don't want to change the overall WB look) consider to whiten her teeth a little... with such a great smile, the pinkish teeth really are a pity in the overall beauty of the image :smile: just my .02! thanks for sharing,
