For this pic I had to improvise and use a shell which I found on the beach and some sand to setup a scene.
I also used my manual flash and a softbox to provide soft light from the right top side of the frame. I took many shots and I chose this especially because of the shadow it drew on the left.
I try to experiment with flash as much as possible. There are so many ways you can change a image simply by moving the flash or re-adjusting it’s position, it’s incredible.
