Christening Photo Fun

Over the weekend I did some shots of the christening of my friends beautiful baby girl. Now regular readers will know that I don't do a lot of people photography and I rarely use flash so it was a real challenge.

I shot the whole thing on my 5D using the 580ex flash unit on camera. After a bit of experimentation before the event I opted to use bounce flash with the little white thingy popped up to add catchlights. Personally I am quite happy with the results but I am sure all the wedding & portrait togs who read my ramblings will be happy to tell me where I have gone wrong.

I think you've done a brilliant job with the photo's. I'm no expert, but a friend of mine is and he'll say you did great. :) You've captured the light just right and that is obviously important. I wish you well in the future and I'm sure you'll go far in your photography.

Keep going... :)
