Another very recent one - in fact taken this morning at a steam engine rally near my home. Camera with 10/20 Sigma held near ground pointing up. -2 stops exposure dialed in to under expose, then lit with on camera Sigma 530 Super flash with stornfo diffuser.

Framing by guesswork - some work in CS3 and a crop.

Camera:EOS 7D
Lens:10/20 Sigma

Ah..., I see.It does make the light look quite different.-2 stops +flash,that's very tricky and clever, I have never heard anybody said this before. Very unique..ah ha... I said that you were the master of light before..What's the theory? I don't know what "stornfo diffuser" is, I googled it the only result was your photo.SmileIt's nice to see and learn something new today, even I'm not really a Fred Dibnah's fanGrin

Hello Xiaoli,

The diffuser is a white plastic cup that fits over the flash head to give softer lighting and to spread the light to cover the wide angle lens. I think I spelt it wrong - something like storno, or similar. The -2 is to darken the sky and background, using the flash to correctly light the foreground.

Ah..thank you.Glad to know.That's why the light is not 'harsh',quite mild and soft, the sky is still blue( I had a lot of 'burned skies).Very clever indeed.I got an excellent idea from you today.Very happy indeed, I'm preparing to go the club nowGrin.Bye!
