I had recently gotten some new gear over winter and have not had the chance to get out and shoot with it. My friend, Kari, loaned me her son to stand there and let me test out my gear on him. Kendyl was a good sport.
I learned a few things that day.
1. My new ND filter sucks
2. My new soft box is awesome
3. A LCD magnifier/eyepiece is the best tool you could have when shooting in bright light
Here are a couple of shots from the test shoot:
