Through the fields

By ianrobinson  
Another from the shoot yesterday with the lovely Model Daisy.

Again using shoot through umbrellas for soft light, this time one either side of Daisy using the left side for the key light whilst the right side is 2 stops darker giving the all important soft shadow keeping it real.

I used to think flash lighting was easy, I now know it is far from, understanding light has been quite difficult for me at times and only now am I realising just how important it is to get a balance with flash and ambient light and how to get it.

This is why I love photography so much, there is always a challenge to overcome.

Good work, my only tiny crit would be to just bring the model more into the natural gap between the trees by moving myself just a couple of inches to the right, nevertheless the image stands out in the gallery, well done.

Thx Truex I understand what you are saying and thanks for the comment but unfortunately i could not do this because as you can see in the foreground i had no room to move in the natural gap of flowers, i did see this at the time of shoot but I thought it better to get the gap leading to the subject right.
Sometimes you have to take the lesser of 2 evils I suppose or choose a different location.
