Without A Care by Janet Rogerson
Clear

My 10 year old Goddaughter skipping along a paddock with some balloons. This was the very last shot of our fun session and my favourite pic of the day.

Pentax K7
50mm 1.7 M-Series lens (love this lens by the way).
1/180 sec, f stop would be a guess as not recorded in exif data due to old manual lens.
ISO 100.

OCF to camera right, model facing straight towards Vivitar 285 on Full Power.
Flashwave triggers.

    Your getting very good at this OCF flash caper Janet.

    What I like most is the happiness on display, both in the girl’s expression and the collection of bright balloons, on what looks to be a bleak day, really tells a story, and that is photos are supposed to do.

  • Well I don’t know about that John, but I’m having fun trying out this OCF caper!

    :) its insane but after aquiring my first (identical to yours – the 50 f/1.7 M – i seem to have embarked on a collecting spree, it’s a love hate relationship though. I love it when I get it right and hate it when I get it wrong – Particularly the focus – but boy is it fun !

  • Yes I know what you mean! I have also recently picked up an 28mm f/2.8 M for only $15 at a market. It’s insane!
