Decided that it was time to take out my pocket wizards and portable flash units and do some serious light tests outdoors. Off camera portable flash can be very handy when wanting to add a “kiss” of light that is barely discernible to the untrained eye. So below are some results from out tests with Jeffrey standing in as model on top of my Hollywood apartment rooftop. Will be testing some more outdoor portraits this week with a ballet dancer.
Test with flash in softbox at 30% contribution and back lit by sunlight
