Sunset At The Cabin

A few nights ago, I decided to take a couple photos of my wife and son in front of our home, a really great log cabin.

But I didn't want to just do any old photo, I wanted it to be a sunset photo, taken during "magic hour". The trouble was, by the time dinner was done, it was dark outside.

So what to do? Why not just make it sunset using flashes. I took my Canon 430EX speedlight, strapped on a full CTO gel, and put it out in the yard about 30 feet. This washed the whole front of the house in hard, orange light. That's pretty much it. Instant sunset.
