Portrait Hazards

Took the boys to a local park last night to shoot some portraits with the Lastolite Ezybox. Showed up a little after six and shortly thereafter received the first bite.

The bugs were out with a vengeance… Not your normal mosquitoes either,we are talking miniature bats with wings.

We decided to run and gun and see what we could do in the lingering minutes of the fading sun.  There is an old red barn in the park, a huge pond, a bridge… so the scenic photo opps are plentiful.

But the bugs proved to be unrelenting. It was like watching a dog fight series on the history channel- went from bad to worse in a hurry. And the boys became increasingly “unhappy”.

Ended up with a few keepers, the image below is one of them… but we had to give the proverbial (and literal) pint of blood to get it 🙂
