What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I was able to light up the room with one flash on the camera.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? I used a Canon 5D mark2 21.1MP with EF 24-105mm f/4L lens Full Frame CMOS camera. Also, I used a Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT. I bounce the flash off the ceiling behind my back in TTL mode and turn up my ISO to about 6400. I shot the photos at about 51/80 at 5.6. Then I edit my photos in Lightroom5 by using the sharping tool and the noise reduction to enhance to photos.
