I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!! I hope that everyone had an enjoyable Christmas Season. At the Anderson's we had an awesome Christmas! I got a brand new set of studio soft boxes. Now I can take better pictures in a studio fashion. I have only taken a few photo with so far but I can all ready tell it's better than using my "speedlites." Speedlites have their own purpose out in the field, whereas the soft boxes are better for the indoor portraits. I found it a lot easier to take portrait pictures with the soft boxes. The speedlites make a harsher light, whereas the soft boxes make the light softer and more appealing.
If you are looking into getting more professional in photography. I strongly recommend getting soft boxes to use for indoor portraits. I am planning on doing some more indoor portraits with my soft boxes.
Here is a Pine Tree (like a Christmas Tree), I took this picture about a year ago!
