Next assignment was working a situation with a flash. I figured I'd try it out on my next Alligator assignment - a profile on a UF fencer. The gymnasium where I had to shoot it was just awful. I had come there with all these cool ideas in my head as a shot list, and none of them were going to work in this scene. So, I just posed her against the plain blue canvas and bounced a flash to the side off a white wall. Worked like a charm and had a nice soft touch to it.
