….after teaching the “Advanced Flash” workshop in Phoenix today, at Studio Moirae:
This was shot using off-camera flash, of course. Using exposure compensation to set the background properly (about -2 stops).
Great workshop, great crowd: more details and shots later!
Thank you again for the afternoon of fun and it was very nice meeting you. What was the exif data of this pic? I was just curious to the further details of the shot, you mentioned -2 exposure compensation, was this shot in Av or M? I may come to tomorrows class as well, decision still pending.
It was 1/50th second at f/4, manual mode (so ‘exposure compensation’ means the meter was indicating -2 at those settings.
Also, Flash Exp Comp was set to minus 2/3, to avoid blowing out the subjects, which were small in the picture. If you come today I’ll explain more!
Oh and of course for colours like this you can set your white balance to Tungsten, and use a tungsten gel on the flash.
