Shooting in the Dark

It's hard at this time of the year, at this latitude, to do much photography outdoors without a tripod and a lot of warm clothing. I've been working on some indoor stuff, practicing my Strobist-fu and seeing where I can go with that stuff.

I've struggled to get April to pose for portraits, without turning it into a game for her. I decided to have her do funny faces, which she thought was hysterical.

My wife wasn't so keen on the low-key appearance of these shots, which came from a dark navy throw that we have on the sofa, so she asked that I do some more lighter shots. I haven't finished processing them yet, but I came up with the idea for this shot whilst I was working through them.
