Bling

I recently had a chance to photograph the young girls of the Bling dance group.  It was a lot of fun.  As you can see the girls are super cute. 

It was an early evening shoot.  I used the setting sun behind them for a strong rim light.  A touch (usually about -2 1/3 stops) of on camera fill flash helped lift the shadows.  For most shots I kept my shutter speed right near my max sync speed, although passing into high speed sync was not a problem as the flash was only spitting out small bursts of fill at a relatively close distance.  The aperture was kept wide to create a bit of separation between the subject and background.
