Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 50mm ƒ/1.4 lens, 1/25 sec at ƒ/4, ISO 100

This is Dedi. He’s one of the awesome people that works at a community center that I’ve been volunteering at for just over a month now. He’s a really cool guy, too … so cool, in fact, that he let me use his photograph I took last week of him on this blog post. :)

I brought my camera to the center to photograph the kids so they can tinker around with the photos in Photoshop. Dedi was kind enough to sit down to let me test out my settings … I basically just stuck a RayFlash (my old Nikon one) onto a Canon 430EX flash (it’s a bit snug, but it fits okay), and use the flash along with a bit of ambient window light to get this look. It was simple, and fun … the kids seemed to enjoy it. They were a bit distracted so I’m not sure if they ever got around to doing anything with the photos (yet), but if I ever get my hands one one I’ll see if I can share it here with you guys. :)
