Here’s a fun-ish post! All of these photos were taken within 80 seconds and about 20 minutes AFTER sunset. What image do you prefer, and why?
A) Flash w/little ambient light
B) Flash w/more ambient light
C) Flash w/lots of ambient light
D) No flash
I purchased new lighting equipment this week after selling my old equipment. I have a wedding this weekend and wanted to familiarize myself with the new equipment. I found someone to model for me last minute. These are some of the test shots. They also serve as an example of how utilizing a flash can give you different results in one setting. While I really prefer to use flash when I have the opportunity (I mean, do you see that beautiful sky?! Why would I want that sky white?!), I don’t always rely on it. Flash is just one of many tools to help make an image, and I am happy that I have knowledge to use it.
Side note: B is my fav. The sky was amazeballs after sunset. I wish I would have paid more attention to posing, but this was a lighting test 😊
