Further to Thursday’s post, I thought I would brighten your day with some more colour.
You see, sometimes you need to shoot things that are a bit, well, drab. Like this wall – the screen is great but the wall is a bit dull:
So then, as you also saw two days ago, I shot it again, this time with two speedlites:
How was this rainbow effect achieved?
- These two 430EX flashes were fired with TTL using a 580EX on my 1D MkIII.
- They were aimed at the wall, one above the other, aimed in the same direction (good idea from my assistant).
- They were fitted with Honl speedstraps and with a Honl gel each: red for the bottom flash, green for the top one. No other modifiers: other than the gels, they were bare.
- The ratio between red and green was set on the back of the 580EX until I was happy.
That was simple, and I think you will agree it’s a better shot.
