Testing Testing 1 2 3

A month or so back I had the opportunity to try out some new on camera fill-in flash settings both outdoors and indoors. I’m not sure if they worked out better than previous attempts but 2 obvious failings plague me whatever set-up I use. The first is positioning the model to prevent her from squinting in the bright sunlight. I usually end up moving into the shade which can then negate the need for fill-in flash which defeats the object of the exercise I suppose. The second problem is how to avoid the harsh shadows when working with on camera flash indoors. I’ve found getting the balance between ambient light and fill-in flash far more miss than hit. I really should spend more time on this but I lack the patience.

Don’t Give Up The Day Job

I’ve never really functioned properly outdoors. Getting the right weather and a model together on the same day always seems to elude me and then there is the eternal problem of finding a local location which guarantees a bit of privacy. In the digital era I think this is my most successful outdoor session and I make no apology for posting from the set again.
