    To light a foreground portrait subject against a setting sun, put a hot shoe flash inside an umbrella-style softbox (A) and warmed up its output with a polarized filter, assistant suspended the Softbox above the subject using a monopod (B) as a boom. Posed the child to block the setting sun using an interchangeable camera with a 17–40mm f/4L EF zoom at its 35mm setting. Fired the flash for an overall exposure of 1/180 sec at f/13, ISO 100. Boom panes!
