Portrait, part 2 / by Laura Daly

To counter the Monday blues, I've compiled some more of the portraits I managed to shoot over the holidays. My style is generally more candid and environmental, so I rarely shoot posed images. However, it is always a challenge to photograph a 2 year old toddler, and some rather unwilling dogs! It was a great opportunity to practice my skills, and to get used to my new flash (Nikon SB-700).

All of the images above were captured using a Nikon D90, Nikon 50 mm f/1.8 and a Nikon SB-700.

I still have a lot to learn regarding my new speedlight, but I'm getting there...I hope!
