Street Urchin

This weekend's theme is "Film Noir" - and this is my hurried attempt to answer that call. We borrowed the neighbor kid, nicknamed "Dennis", and headed down to Fairhaven. I put a 430EX on a tall stand with an extension as high as it would go to be the street light on the right (there's a real street light in the photo too). Then tried to coax him into emoting "sad". The poor kid doesn't know what sad is, now how sad is that?

It got cold out, and past his bedtime, so we had to wrap after shooting about 7 frames. Had we more time I woulda, coulda, shoulda, put another 430EX up high with a grid spot to fill in the missing pool of light under the street lamp on the left.

Shot at 70mm, 1/25th, f4.5, iso 800 with the 430 at 1/16th power.

  1. Very cool. Yes it would be nice to have a pool of light over there, but I think this looks great even without out. And he does looks kinda sad. Good one!
