My very first attempt at strobist-style lighting. I just picked up my first batch of light modifiers/accessories and this is the result.
Still have a lot of learning to do, but I’m happy with several of the shots I got tonight including this one.
Things I know I need to improve: I think the key light on the left might have worked better a little higher up and pointing down. A third flash as a rim light to pull Sam’s hair out of the dark background would make this shot a lot better.
I’m thick-skinned. I’d love any suggestions or criticisms.
Canon 580EX II in a Lumiquest SoftBox III camera left just kissing Sam’s face.
Silver reflector just out of frame camera right.
Yungnuo 560 on its stand behind Sam shot through a red gel.
Flashes triggered with eBay triggers.
Question by Anna: What job could I get helping kids at a foster home or helping kids tremendously?
I am a high school student, and I’ve always LOVED kids. If there was anything I want to do, I want to help kids feel comfortable and make them happier than ever. Is there any (women) job I could start studying or looking into that would help me accomplish my dreams when I’m older? How much does that job get paid? I hope you can give me a good idea!

You took take in foster kids when you are older. You don’t get paid though. It is a labor of love. You could work as a child therapist, or teacher in a juvenile detention facility (juvenile hall). They really need caring adults. None of the truely important jobs with youths in need pay much. That is just the way our society is.
Obviously you will need to go to college. Right now you could volunteer to help in schools or libraries, or get summer jobs at camps with kids.
