Overpowering Daylight

A few weeks ago, I went to a workshop on Flash Photography from Jen OSullivan. One of the techniques she showed us was to overpower daylight. What this does is render the sky a very dark blue without underexposing your subject. So last Thursday, when I went to the beach with my kids, I experimented. Here are a few shots that turned out OK. The composition isn't that great, and my models were kind of tired after spending the whole day at the beach! But I was able to get a dark blue sky even though these shots were taken at 6:30 pm.

I wanted to stay until sunset and experiment some more but my subjects were really tired and not very cooperative! So we decided to call it a day...
