What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I took these a few weeks ago when my wife was at 36 weeks. I have been wanting to take some baby bump pictures but most of the images I have seen have been high key. Being in possession of just one speed light, I decided to go for a low key shoot and I am pretty happy with the results. My wife looks beautiful as always.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? This was the first time I have used my D800 since upgrading from my D90. It is surprisingly different to use, it seems to be much more sensitive to camera shake and its metering takes a little getting used to. These shots were taken using a simple grey paper background and one speed light in an octobox soft box and one or to with a reflector at either side.
