Caught in the act of smiling

Brent was third for me to make a photograph of on Sabbath morning. He controls his facial expressions well. I can direct to him slowly widen the eyes and the corners of his mouth and I take a few as his expression widens. I like this one best of about 30 of him.

Strobist info: SB-900 into an Impact white 45" shoot through umbrella at camera left at about 9-10 oclock position about 2-3' away. SB-800 into wescott white 43" shoot through umbrella camera right for some fill on the close side of the face. White 7' styrofoam posterboad at the back acting as a flag and a reflector. SB-600 behind the styrofoam aimed at the hair for hair light. 4' fluorescent light bank with 4 4' bulbs in each 40 watts at 5000k color temp. Pop up flash at M 1/32 providing a hair bit of on axis fill and acting as commander to trigger the 3 flashes. (in two groups).
1/200 sec at f/5.6 ISO 125 with "Nikkor 85mm f/1.4D" at 85 mm focal length on a Nikon D80
