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