Why so serious?

Wanting to test out my new Godox X1N flash triggers, I grabbed Ivy and plonked her on the grass.  Luckily she decided to sit still for the whole time but did eat a few handfuls of grass.

The new triggers along with my Neewer TT860 are able to shoot with high speed sync (HSS) which enables you to get the soft background in bright sunlight.  Its not a new technique but it is one I am looking to explore more in upcoming portraits.
