A SIMPLE LIGHTING SOLUTION
In last weeks Tech Talk Tuesday, I showed you some portraits that were taken on short notice, outside, at dusk. They all had beautiful lighting, but not from an on camera flash. As I've said many times, an on camera flash would produce a harsh, flat, deer-in-the-headlights look. Most unflattering. If it is too dark to bounce some light onto your subject with a reflector, (which would be my first choice), and you don't have portable studio lights to set up outdoors, but you want a lovely lit portrait in dark conditions, what is another option??????
Well, I guess you could just take your photo without any light at all...... but you can tell by the above result that this is not a good option. Even a harsh camera flash would be an improvement over this.
