One Flash + Ambient

The folks running this changed the event so I don't get to do this any more. But it was good for the five Decembers I did. This from 2013 but it's really timeless
A speed light (I think a YN 560II) and an old 43" shoot thru Photoflex umbrella for main. Ambient daylight for fill. Santa under a canopy in the street, my white vinyl background behind and I get to kneel in the street.

Sterling work! It is good to be reminded that great results may still be had with relatively simple setups.
