Bath Time Fun
Camera: K20D 
Posted By: kewpie-o, 03-21-2010, 08:30 PM

Just some shots of bath time I took the other night, while messing around with my new Metz 58 flash. My bathroom has very poor light and even when I crank up the ISO, the pics look crummy and racoon-eyes abound when just using ambient light. I was bouncing flash from the Metz in all of these shots. I'm REALLY enjoying this flash, despite the fact that I really don't know what I'm doing.

I think you've done great with the flash, especially the first one wich is as good as it could be, and the angle of light is great to.

I always tend to bounce behind me to left or right, when i close quarters.

Good Work!

It looks like you know what you are doing. Very crisp shots and well done on the b&w conversions.

I feel that no "bath time" series is complete without a shot of the child crying because shampoo is in their eyes.

Well done.
