Not yet flash with flash . . .

I’ve just started to experiment with using off camera flash for outside portraits – and I have an uneasy feeling that wrapping my brain around all the different settings is going to be as much a learning curve as switching the camera settings to manual was back when I first began to do that.   But, as always, yay for helpful friends prepared to stand around while I experiment.

Taken at noon, in light filtered by leaves being whipped around in a brisk breeze, with very erratic brightness.  Settings: 55mm f/2 iso 100 1/200, and me holding a flash (with a remote trigger on camera) as far away as I could with one hand, while balancing and focusing the camera with the other.
