2012 Project 365 Day 234

Day 234  The weather today gave me another opportunity to practice shooting in overcast lighting.  I didn't bother with a grey card and just metered at  1 for my older daughter's skin (though I remembered afterward I should have done  2/3 instead) based on having tested her with the gray card before.  But as I'm typing this I realized that my younger daughter's darker skin should be metered at only  1/2 or so, and I'm confused about metering again.   At least there's a little bit of catchlight from the overcast sky in Caroline's eyes.  ISO100  1/320sec  f/2.8  After this I tried using the reflector again but I'm having trouble figuring out how to place it.  I'll keep working on it, of course.
