Becky's Mom asked me to take some photos of her. So I did. Since I'm sure you're fascinated, here are the lighting details: One medium softbox above, containing a speedlight at 1/16th power and a reflector below. All on the Canon 50mm 1.8 Mkii, a truly awesome lens. Click the pics to biggerise and see how cool the lens is...

By now you'll have seen this one on Flickr, yeah? Just in a different flavour.

I learned a lot about taking portraits of kids. They won't stand still for more than a few seconds, and are easily distracted. In Becky's case, the TV was a handy distraction, but so was the softbox, the tripod, the back of the camera and so on...

...and kids get bored quickly. Very quickly. Nevertheless, or alternatively, neverthemore, Becky was trés well behaved and a great time was had by all.
