Practice makes perfect

A few years ago my son was learning to go his scooter and it was a memory worth capturing.  I was also experimenting with off-camera flash and thought this a good opportunity to use it to stop the action but also capture the movement.  

It can be really useful for a photographer to have children to press-gang into modelling duties, but one time I made the mistake of offering extra pocket money for a session, and since then the fees have risen exponentially!
