Off camera flash with the Fuji X-Pro1

What to do on a typical irish winter day? It's not so cold, but rainy and windy, definitely miserable outside. So let's stay inside, have some nice food and shoot some portraits of yourself and your family.

I positioned my main light, a 60x60cm softbox with a flash slightly right to the camera and placed a white diffuser on the right side of the subject. I used an other flashgun facing the a cream backdrop and some natural light was hitting the subject through a window on the left. The last shot of Hanna was made by using a different lighting setup, weaker main light on the left and no additional light or diffuser on either side.(Probably should have cleaned her face before taking the shot, but at least she looks like a real kid!)

All photos were taken with the 35mm f1.4 lens, processed in Lightroom 4 and Portrait Professional.
