Learning Log #4 Flash/Ambient

Using a speed light to add lighting to these images were really cool. It was a slight over cast with the sunlight peaking in out of the clouds. I used the natural sunlight to my advantage and placed the speed light in front of Marione to create a glow of light on her. I used many different angles an positioned her in different spots to catch the sunlight that came from behind her. In the images I posted the sun was hidden with clouds but it highlighted Marione’s face very nicely I think. In the last image the sun was actually glaring in her direction but due to me positioning her in an area where she had to sit low, I was able to create a soft diffused setting which actually made it look dark out. I kept in mind a low iso, and aperture. All in all very enjoyable photos.
