Of the 160-some-odd photos that I took of the family this afternoon at the Hamilton House, only three were decent. With a family of five, it is very tough to get a shot with everyone looking at the camera and smiling, at the same time. This was more of an outtake shot that we really liked. I had all the gear setup for today. Strobist info: Canon 580EX2 Full Power Shoot Through [white] umbrella camera left (technically a little too camera front as some of the light from the flash bounced back into the lens). I actually had my other umbrella setup on a stand to camera right without a flash to block the sun poking through the trees. The Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS is a great lens, but suffers front flare. The temps soared last night into today, I believe it was in the mid to upper 60's. All the outdoor spots were packed.
