With the nice weather we’ve been having recently, I was banking on some nice evening shots. Originally I was supposed to shoot with Viaga from Roza, but she couldn’t make it with work. Fortunately she dragged in Aelita to fill in at short notice. The sky didn’t look like anything would happen, but then we hit the jackpot.
Shot on the Fuji X-T10 with 18mm and 35mm lenses. Neewer TT850 (Godox v850 rebrand) into 120cm Octa. Lit from the side to short light the face. Here you’re mixing an ambient shot exposed for the sky and another of a flash portrait. Set the look of the sky first, then adjust the power of the flash to suit. I’ve aimed the Octa upwards to have less light hitting the ground.
