I mentioned earlier that I was presenting in Derby at the beginning of the week and part of the presentation involved me showing how I create my ‘Anytime Anywhere’ portraits.
So for today’s post I thought I’d share the result along with the series of pictures that show how the final lighting result was achieved…
The pictures below show the thought process behind the technique where the first picture shows natural light and how when I switch to Manual the ambient light is reduced to the point we have a completely black background. Then in the final picture how the light coming from the flash illuminates the subject and the ambient light level remains the same i.e. completely dark.
In 2 weekends time I’ll be recording the tutorial showing the whole process including going through what kit to use and why/when, the behaviour of light, light modifiers plus the post processing and this will be available shortly afterwards.
As always if you have any questions then feel free to make use of the comments section below and I’ll be sure to post a reply. Actually on the subject of questions, if you have any ones in particular to this technique please do let me know and I’ll make a point of answering them in a practical way during the filming.
Have a great Thursday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.
