Self Portrait

My first self portrait for 2018. I used to do a lot of these but for some reason stopped, I think its about time to start again. Anyway, I set this up using two strobes; one as a backlight and the other on a softbox with a diffuser and grid.

Low-Key/Low-Light Portraiture with Toys/Figures

Single speedlight on the beach

I was up early for my normal day job (supply/substitute primary school teacher), but the work was cancelled, and I thought - why not go down to the beach? Low tide coincided with early morning sun, and the weather was *very* windy, which meant waves. However, it also meant I couldn't use any sort of modifier on the flash or it would have blown...
