This is me going way outside the comfort zone - there's colour in it !!!
My main reason making the picture was to put my learning in the use of fill flash to the test. This was my first serious outing with the flash unit I recently bought and was related to our local community group that tries to care for the environment of our village, of which I am chairperson, getting out to do work for the first time this year.
Everything in the foreground is illuminated by the flash unit.
Aesthetically, it's not the greatest picture ever taken, but the aim was to effectively manage the flash so that, as Syl Arena says in his new book, the idea is to make a picture in which you wouldn't know that flash was used.
