Lighting In Timmins

I am in Montreal, but take a look at this shot from the Timmins workshop on Saturday:

I use flashes – two on each stand:

  • Flash makes the subject stand out (I like a “darkground” -a darker background).
  • Side flash makes the subject three-dimensional.
  • More light is good. One stop more by doubling the light on each side.
  • Two, also to cover a vertical subject more evenly.

I used 1/250th and 100 ISO, obviously (why “obviously”?) – and that got me f/13.

Now off to shoot my son’s graduation ceremony at McGill – yes, I am in Montréal.
