Day 5

One trick that I have learned in the last few years is to make artificial light look like natural daylight indoors. This can be done several ways, the easiest is to put the flash outside of a window and fire it back into the room through the window. That wasn't going to work for this situation since we were on the second floor and there was no balcony to put the lights out on. For this one I fired two flashed into the corner of the room, camera right, bouncing the light off the white wall back at her. By using the corner of the room instead of a flat wall the light seems a bit softer. Just remember anytime you bounce light off of something it will pick up that color.
I shot this one with a D300 a 16-85 and two SB-900's camera right.
