Winter Fashion

By Richsr
Thanks to for all your comments on my last upload, very much appreciated.

Trying out my new Pocket wizard TTL triggers with this series, set the camera to underexpose by one stop and let the wizards deal with the flash exposure seem to work well.
Model is Fredau
Lighting Assistant: Darren( Dathersmith)
Location: Winter gardens theater Morecambe
It was blowing a gale out on the balcony which gave the flying hair and scarf, so Darren really had to hold on to the lighting stand.

Regards Richard

Stunning lighting Richard, just knew this was yours - Carole
Brilliant work here with the wind, which can ruin a shoot so easily. You've grabbed it by the scruff of the neck and used it perfectly. Another very clever outdoor shoot.

Wind has worked in your favour here Richard. Hair & lighting look great and I love the shadow.

Thanks for your comment everyone, I do appreciated them
Trev, I have used the Plus II for a few years now and they worked for manual flash. The TTL one's seem to do a good job too especially if you are in difficult conditions and have to work quickly

I gather your talking the Mini and Flexi PW's Richard.

Think the extreme conditions worked in your favour.

Not an easy shot to get right Richard, so much to be taken into account. But you've pulled it off very well indeed, I like it.

A photographer who shall remain nameless has been saying that Fredau is retiring.....Sad She is not retiring BTW) She works a lot with Trevor & Faye Yerbury and Faye has spoken with Fredau to say she is definitely NOT retiring........she is a great model.

Classic image.
