My son wanted me to take some pictures of him so we went down to the park that is close to our house. This park typically has a fair amount of homeless people wandering through. A local church feed the homeless here 1 night a week. During the day it is a nice family friendly park and at night a haven for the not so fortunate. The day started cold and when the sun set it became colder. After getting some fun pictures of my son I began thinking about the homeless that live in our town. I wanted to show what it would be like out at night being cold and alone. There wasnâ€™t enough light from the lamps so I had to use my flash. I set them up in several spots and nothing worked. I stopped and started thinking about how would the light look if I were painting it in. I needed a lamp post shinning down on him. So, for this shot, I set my reflector up high and about a 30-35 degree angle as if it were a lamp post and I bounced my flash up into the reflector. I wanted to make sure there was at least one lamp in the picture so the viewer would assume the light on the boy was coming from a lamp and not my flash.
