Test Shoot with Graham

A great friend of mine is round for the weekend and asked if I could show him how to use off camera flash. Absolutley, lets go one better and get out the studio kit. One will do!

I explained about how different shutter speeds with different apertures can affect the outcome. Also, using a higher f.stop can create darker backgrounds or make it look like it was taken at night. Also the use of a reflector can help reduce the harsh moulding created by either the sun or the flash. (depending which side you hold it.) The distance of the flash from the model as well as the distance you are from the model can also have different outcomes. The best way is to experiment…like I did today.

Small amount of post processing to clean up some spots and also added a desaturated feel to some of them.

So here are my results.

Enjoy.

200th | f.29 | ISO 100

200th | f.6.3 | ISO 100

250th | f.29 | ISO 100
