Somebody Get This Kid an Agent.

UPDATE:This photo was shot indoors -- Jeff posted a lighting setup shot here.

One of the best things about running a site like this is watching people use light to elevate their family photos. Every day, someone drops a photo of a baby (or kid, or sweetie) into the pool that looks like it could have jumped off of the pages of a magazine.

Jef79m used a DIY beauty dish at camera left and a shoot-thru umbrella at upper camera right, both with speedlights at half power to overpower daylight. But that still wasn't enough soft light to fill in all of those Butterball wrinkles.

Note to the photographer: If you lose your memory card, it might be in Mackenzie's arm somewhere...
