I decided to setup umbrellas this year for some family photos, and used my DA* 16-50 for all of them. I could really use a Sigma 30mm f1.4!

For the red wall portraits the flashes were set to equal power and roughly equal distance to handle 2 problems; 1) reflection from the wall and 2) black clothing! sigh.

i'm not happy with the shadows & highlights on the red wall, but a lack of space is to blame.
