Photo365 – Day 92 – Rock on Baslow Edge

I went over to Baslow Edge in Derbyshire this evening as I hoped we’d get a sunset, and we did. It wasn’t brilliant but ok and a good chance to test the portable studio flash I’m currently reviewing.

I underexposed the background and fired the flash from above to fill in detail in the rock. It was a bare tube with no modifier.

Photo365 – Day 23 – Highland Cow

Probably my favourite photo from my Photo365 series so far. Almost like a present following the heavy week I’ve had. It’s a Highland cow taken on Baslow Edge in Derbyshire I was out testing the new Tamron 18-270mm lens on a Nikon D90. I’d gone to photograph a sunset and although the sun broke through a couple of times it had totally clouded over when needed.

I got up pretty close to the cow and went for a low angle. I used the Nikon’s built in flash and underexposed the background. I was impressed with the ability of the little internal flash, it certainly lifted this one.
