Hi and welcome back.
I freelance write for Shutterbug Magazine and the September issue hits the stands today. My gear review article on the Expoimaging Rogue Flashbender Pro XL is in this issue.
In it I review the Rogue XL Pro system for small flash modification. Don’t wait, get your copy right away!
On to the post.
Continuing with the reflective umbrella, I want to show you how creative you can be by just moving your light source to one side.
In the next image of Kaitlyn, the model from yesterday’s post. With a quick outfit change I took the moment to move my light from the 45 x 45 setup and just moved it to the side.
In the BTS shot, you can see how the light is nearer the wall and how the background gets a bit more light on it.
- Manfrotto 1052 BAC Light stand
- Photoflex 45″ Convertible Umbrella
- Nikon SB910 and SD9 battery pack
- Pocket Wizard Plus III
- Savage Thunder Gray Paper
Exposure: 1/125 @ f/5.6, ISO200, WB Daylight
In the final, I had the model turn toward the light to get a beautiful soft and contrasty light.
That’s it for today. Till next time, keep changing!
