The most dramatic thing on the making of todays video was that the wind blew this shot in the first place. A slightly damaged shoot through umbrella and a receiver.
At some point the lighting circumstances where changing in a way that we decided don’t to use light modifiers all together. We also decided to just use one flash.
If you are just starting out you probably think that this are the kind of images you had in mind when buying your camera. Don’t be afraid to try this as you really don’t need to spend a lot of money for a camera body to achieve this.
