Twas the day before Thanksgiving and all through the woods, all the creatures were stirring ... well you get the idea. Check out my Mom's Flickr while you're at it.
The wind was roughly a tornado, (seriously windy) so keeping everything on the ground was a chore in itself. All in all I wish the lighting was more even but this will do since I'm happy with the way everyone looks.
The lighting situation was tricky at best. Unfortunately my Cactus wireless trigger batteries pooped out on me, so I made do with a different trigger (Yongnuo st-e2) which I've yet to really figure out and shoot in AV mode (instead of manual) ... Bounced a 580ex II out of 60" umbrella on +2 flash exposure from Camera right - sun coming in from camera right and behind subjects. Subjects in the hard to deal with mottled shade/sunlight.
