black foamie thing. I asked my wife and our toddler to stand near a wall, then took some shots. It all happened in a span of just a few minutes.
The camera was on manual mode, wide open at f/2.8, with the shutter at sync speed to eliminate ambient. The flash was on-camera in TTL mode, and I bounced to the ceiling on camera right. I like how the shots turned out, which was in no small part because our toddler was being very cooperative :)
