Out of the Blue

The last shot of the day; a thousand thanks to Jo for putting her thigh and calf muscles to the test to get this shot! Strobist info: camera white balance set to 2,500 K (creating the blue effect) and a single zoomed flash from above with two full CTO gels to achieve regular white light […]

Jo, ETH Strobist Day 2010

Nice, simple flash to balance the ambient light: one flash with white umbrella on a high stand next to me. Mild vignette applied during post-processing.

Fanny

Similar technique to the previous shot from this session, shooting directly into bright sunlight and allowing flare to create the soft effect. This shot was less contrasty as there was a curtain of leaves between Fanny and the sun.
