Creeped Out

We had some fun with J's expressive face--these three are just a sampling of his facial control. The key to long exposure portraits is setting your flash to rear sync: this makes the flash pop at the end of the exposure, ensuring a sharp portrait, even if he has moved a little during the exposure (you can probably do this with your point and shoot camera if you look through the menus). Two SB-600's with red and blue gels on either side, and the campfire behind provide the light. Setting the White Balance extra cool (incandescent /tungsten setting) makes the blues pop a little more. The long exposure is responsible for the spark trails from the campfire behind.
