You may recall my mentioning in a prior post that Marc bought me a special flash set. After our trip to the festival earlier today, I decided to relax a bit in the sunroom. I read a book for a while, and then I decided to experiment a bit with the flash set.
Using just two of the flashes, I decided to work with Mandy. She had made herself comfy in the large club chair that used to be my Mom's. I can't blame Mandy, since it's a very comfortable chair! :)
I set one flash up across the room from her and bounced it off the white ceiling. I set the other up near the back windows and put a yellow-orange gelatin filter on it, so I could create lighting like sunset (even though it wasn't that time of day yet, and today's overcast would kill any chance of such lighting occurring naturally even if it were).
I took a handful of shots, varying the angles of the flash heads and altering the ratios of the outputs of the two until I got what looked like a nice balance. This one is my favorite...
It has the warmth of the sunset, but it's subtle. It's not the appearance of blast of sunlight. Just a glow. Do you like it?
