Burke Lake with Cat

Cat was kind enough to help me out test my new lighting equipment. i recently purchased an extra small softbox and a 43" shoot through umbrella. well, i got to actually use them yesterday! i've learned that i like to photograph with lots of sky. unfortunately it was hazy out and overcast when we went to burke lake. so there were lots of photos where the sky would stay completly white. the first photo, my favorite from all of them by the way, was the only one where we had a bit of blue show up in the sky. i've also noticed that if i were to walk around locations, the softbox gets to be a pain to have to set up and break down each time, so i used the umbrella for most of the photos. i still need to learn where to position the light. either way, she was fun to photograph and i hope we'll get to do so again!
