A Portrait in Autumn Colours

Last weekend I had a very pleasant photo shoot with two kids of my wife's friend. This is one of the pictures that I liked most. The nice separation from the background was achieved by underexposing it by one stop. The light is coming from the camera left where my assistant is holding a 430EX flash with 1/4 CTO gel and a shoot-through translucent umbrella on a monopod. My Canon 5D synchonizes only up to 1/200s, however, with the new PocketWizards Flex and Mini I could actually achieve a synchronization at 1/250s, which allowed for a better background blur at F4. The young lady was very happy with the final result. Camera spec: Canon 5D mark ii with Canon 70-200 4F at 168mm, F4 @ 1/250, ISO 100.
