My sons helping the lifeguards at the beach

Lifeguards

Considering the image: We spent the afternoon at the beach at Isle of Palms, SC for Mother’s Day.  I took the opportunity to do some beach photography using Canon’s iTTL system.  I took quite a few of the usual types of shots, but when the lifeguards offered to let the boys get some photographs with their buoys, I knew that would make the image for the day.

Making the photograph: For the beach shooting I wanted to keep things simple and just focus on getting the shots.  In order to do that I swapped over to my old EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 II just in case the camera took a drink or fell in a sand pit.  I added the 430EX to the top and put it in iTTL and high speed sync.  I set the camera on Aperture priority and shot at the widest possible aperture.  I dialed in -1EV to saturate the colors in the scene a bit and then added the fill flash at -1 to -1/3 EV.  Using the iTTL, the shots were easy and I could simply dial up/down on either the flash or the exposure to balance the scene.  I would have liked to have had a diffuser dome on the flash to soften it just a bit, but most of the shots were far enough that the dome wouldn’t have made much difference.
