No more volleyball for a while around here. I think everyone is looking forward to the break. The last tournament was this weekend in Des Moines. That is a fun little city.

Have you ever been there?

Here are some things I saw along the way in Iowa…

Lots of flat empty highways

Pixel 3a XL

It’s a very interesting state. We lived there for a few years about 20 years ago in a rural town but came back to the St. Louis area after my oldest was born to be close to our families.

I used my 50mm prime lens on these two, which is what I use for portraits in general. I shot at an aperture of f/1.8 because they are so small and a shutter speed of 1/160 seconds hoping that was fast enough to keep any blur out if they moved a bit.

The ISO was at 800 which is fairly high even though I was indoors, but I really wanted to balance the ambient light with the flash so I pushed it up some.

I always get excited when I am able to use my new flash with success, since I am mostly inexperienced with flash.
