.I snapped this photo at night. First, I focused on the faux flowers, and made sure it was set to manual. Then, I set up an off-camera flash to the right, and turned the lights off. Since I do not have remote flash capability, I flipped up my camera's flash and deflected it to an optical slave flash trigger with a steel spatula from the kitchen. I was happy with the results, and I hope you like it as well.
.Now, here's the plot twist... I went back to Betty's, so I could give credit to Mark for his idea, and here's what I found. My brain got things jumbled up. I somehow thought that he did a night shot with off-camera flash, but the strong side lighting was all natural... from a sunset.
.Praise God for his handiwork in creation and for the talent he lavished on Mark. Praise the Lord also for the grace he bestows on us by allowing such occasions that our accidents and misinterpretations can sometimes have an aesthetic element to them.
