More Lighting Practice At Funny Angles...

By rowarrior
More from the lighting practice in Heaton Park. We moved down to some old tram tracks which are in a nice alley of trees, and which were still quite snowy. I admit I was freaking out holding the camera at an angle I couldn't see through the viewfinder, but our trusty teacher advised the spray and pray technique lol. It worked, only 1 of the 4 was totally off base, and I quite liked the results.

The flash for this was on a stand off the track pointing at the victim.

C&Cs welcome

Again, works well.
Something to try since you are up for a bit of experimentation.

Meter then go to manual and under expose by several stopps, (try a few to see what works best).
The un-lit background and sky will take on a really moody look while your subject is still lit nicely. You may have to adjust the amount of flash or even try a coloured light or two, (sweety papers are cheeper than proper diffusers and work just as well! Wink ).

Keep having fun!
