I am starting to think Monday isn't the best day for a #DILOday. Lesson learned.

Equipment Q&A  - 
 
I'm looking to upgrade from my ancient tripod for under $200. Any recommendations? I'd like to be able to rotate to portrait orientation.

I recommend saving up for a good, solid, carbon fiber tripod from Gitzo or Manfrotto, and a good ball head from Kirk, Really Right Stuff, or Arca Swiss. Carbon fiber is light, strong, and minimizes transmission of vibrations. Many people make the mistake of buying several cheap tripods before finally getting the one they wish they had gotten in the first place. The legs and ball head will each cost more than $200, though.

Thanks. I brought these into Lightroom for the edits. But when I edit on the phone, I prefer Snapseed.

I was trying to expose for the background and fill with flash. But is this too much?

It looks good! Great composition. I am learning lighting as well, so no expert here. I do think it's a bit high in contrast (subject brighter than ambient) and if you want to even it out there are a few ways to do it, or if you wanted your subjects to stand out then you did good :0) Maybe add a vignette to top it off?
Love the creative composition!
