This was a brutally backlit tent with the mid-morning sun beating down behind the flag and a river t oadd glare.
I put an SB800 flash on on of the tent poles camera right and controlled it with an SB900 on the camera. I would not have been able to change batteries on the slaved flash during the event so i used it sparingly. THe SB900 made it easy to switch back and forth.
But this salute is the “kiss the bride” moment at a change of command so i wanted plenty of light and and maybe a second shot.
