One of the traditions I have is to take portraits of my daughters on or near their birthdays.
I knew going in that I wanted something in black and white, and an image that was more serious in nature. Our eldest daughter can be more serious and pensive, taking things seriously at times, and I wanted something to reflect that aspect of her personality.
I also wanted the lighting to be simple - one light, nothing more. I used a single flash and a white shoot-through umbrella to light this, with her younger sister holding the light so it was quite close, flying over her and a bit in front.
Again, just a single light, shoot-through umbrella, but a more colorful picture, with the background showing up and not totally underexposed.
