Here are some Photos of Fin's very beautiful ball-jointed doll. They were all taken with the Canon EOS XSi. I used three flashes for this lot, a ring flash mounted on the lens, a flash to illuminate the background, and a flash off to one side and above the subject.

It was difficult to balance the light from the three flashes properly. I got the Sigma ring flash, and I can't figure out how to set a A:B C configuration like you can from the Speedlite 580EX II. I wanted to control the background flash a bit more, as often it is too bright. Maybe I'll check out the Sigma flash's manual.

Ok - After checking out the manual - I am even more confused. I'm not sure the Sigma talks to the Canon flashes at all, but some of the photos clearly seem to show that the background is lit giving a rather glowy effect to the hair. I'm clearly going to have to experiment some more with this.

We took some picture of the lights that people had set up around our neighbourhood this year. It seemed like fewer people had lights up than last year, but there were a few with some good displays. We didn't get a good lit nativity really, the only one that was any good at all seemed like Mary was not lit, and the other lights weren't very bright. We took a picture or an awesome santa and snowman turning about. I'm going to make an animated picture and post it!
