    Here is a shot taken in a crowded English style pub. The only time I ever see TV is occasionally in a pub since I gave up allowing one in the house almost 30 years ago. We were 1/2 watching the women's international gymnastics championships, floor exercises when a young woman came and started explaining what the significance of some movements in the scoring. As we chatted I took a photo of her using the little Z6 with 24-70 f/4 lens. Set manual exposure and AF-C , set ISO to 400 and slow shutter of 1/20(yes pretty dark place) and let the rear curtain bounce flash fill in the missing 3 stops. We both liked the shot because it captured her rich auburn hair. Here knowledge of gymnastics was impressive and when asked how she became so knowledgeable she replied she was in the 2008 Summer Olympics in China in Gymnastics, she was with her team but was injured in the first day so could not compete in the second day.
    Nothing surprises me here, I meet the most interesting accomplished people daily. By the way, a girl from this city placed 3rd in the event we were watching, but I would have placed her as number 1 for her very feminine beauty alone, a stunner. Ksenia, my new acquaintance in the photo mow teaches gymnastics now that she retired from competition 10 years ago. Such a slow shutter allows more ambient and any movement would be 3 stops under exposed and the flash going off at the end of the exposure time would freeze and shake. I could have gotten this shot with much slower shutter using this technique called "Dragging the Shutter".

    Here is a shot taken just strolling down the main street of St Petersburg, on a cool fall evening, a girl walking the opposite way lost in thoughts.
    This was a 120mm from a 70-200 2.8 on a Z6 with the only light being the store window behind me. 1/100, ISO 2000

    I am just getting started with portraiture. These are some of my first photos of people outside of family. I was trying to get some of the classic poses. The first one is my favorite.

    Then I played around in Photoshop. I think it turned out pretty good.

    Here is are a few from an after brunch walk along the canals of the city center of this city, that is composed of 44 islands and hundreds of bridges. It was a cool autumn afternoon and already the light was fading as winter daylight is very short 500 miles from the Arctic Circle. In the summer, just the opposite with May and June being called White Nights with the sun setting, barely around midnight and fully light by 0400 but never getting very dark. We live about 2km from this spot in over several smaller canals bridges. It was dark by the time we got home in just 30 minutes after these were taken.

    My battery died on one of my flashes in the middle of the shoot. ( I now have a back up battery) So I finished the shoot with one flash. I actually like the photos with one flash better than the ones with two. I am having trouble recognizing when my back light is to light or to dark. I bought a light meter and I am still trying to learn to read it. Today I bought a flash that has a modeling light that should help some but not with the back light. I will post the ones I liked first and then the ones where I am having trouble with the back light. Any suggestions are appreciated.
