The documenting of Kristen and Dan’s wedding continues, and so, of course, does the photography. Today at Dunn’s falls:
With an on camera flash aimed straight ahead – yes, you can do that outside, when the flash is being mixed with ambient light. On-camera, straight-ahead flash. Which is often a sin, but not here.
But it was flash with a special setting: I zoomed in the flash to the “135mm zoom” setting, while shooting 35mm wide angle (yes, your flash has a zoom setting). That had two effects:
- The light is concentrated “flashlight style”, i.e. it is centered, leading to this great vignetting.
- The light is more concentrated, and that is what I needed to beat the f/11 at 200 ISO.
Another couple of examples:
Jamaica is wonderful, and the people are wonderful.
