Rodney -- the technique that you mentioned -- wow. It's a great reminder for us to think not only of direct lighting (like the sun, a flash, or a softbox), and indirect, man made lighting (like a reflector) but using the environment to create lighting effects. From my understanding, you used the lake as a key, the reflections of the rocks was a fill, and the result is a smooth and softly lit subject.

Ignoring the other aspects of the picture (that you realize are lacking) that's absolutely fantastic. One more good thing for me to think about in the field!

Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the comments. I used my small digicam for this shot...I never have the good stuff with me when I need it. :-) I'm going back to this spot and do another shot. I want to try some negative fill by using black foamcore and also try a -1 stop diffusion panel on the fill side to see what kind of effect I'll get. I'm thinking black foamcore will leave the shadow side too dark. Any thoughts about how I can best do that?

Here is a toned b/w conversion. That blue sweater is way too loud. :-)
