For my birthday, I got my very first lighting kit (flash + wireless trigger + light stand + 3-in-1 umbrella). As soon as I put the kit together, I tested it out with a very special model (my father). The seventh click of my camera produced the picture below. It's a case of instant love with lighting! So much to learn now...

My father. 50mm on full frame. 1/160 sec, f/8, ISO 100. Shoot-through umbrella.

And this is click number 2, which required some post production to darken the background.

My mother. Same settings as above.
