I just took an off camera flash course online and decided to try out some of the techniques I was learning. I wanted to get that ball of fire type of sunset with a little fire fighter and a flag for the 4th. Only problem was I didn't have any of the props, or a boy model to get it done, and I was leaving town the next day. I am surrounded by awesome people though. I put on Facebook that I needed a costume, a flag and a boy in a few hours and I got all 3 things from 3 different people! Thank you to them for letting me play out my ideas!
Emmett modeled for me this night and we had fun! I wish I hadn't chosen a spot with power lines, but it was just for practice with my flash so I didn't worry too much about it!
I am so grateful for all of the heroes we are surrounded by! My heart especially goes out to those families who have lost their heroes in the name of duty!
