What a beautiful day for Thanksgiving in Nebraska! We had so much family come together and had such a great time. I had so much fun taking pictures and playing with my new speedlight flash. Right before sunset we decided we would grab those last rays of light and take a family picture outside. I set up my tripod and my schmancy new flash. We set the self timer, I jumped in the picture and….. voila!
I took this picture with my Nikon D3100, an 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, my SB700 flash and the self timer. (Let it be known that I use my 50mm f/1.8 so often that I was struggling for a minute with zoom and focus!!) I set the white balance to “cloudy” which made the really rich, warm colors of fall stand out. I cropped the photo a bit and used Pioneer Woman’s Color Boost in post-edit.
