How to Use a Flash Outside
Shooting for a Natural Look
How to use a Flash outside.
Today we went out to a preserve with Nina for a shoot!
Using strobes and ambient light with a good ratio will help create more contrast without looking artificially lit. Changing your shutter speed to let in more light will help your image look more interesting (than mostly ambient or mostly strobe-lit) while still maintaining the a style that looks completely natural.
We started off with a relatively slow shutter speed, 1/160, and an aperture of 3.2, so we needed to lower the ISO down to 50. You could also use a ND filter.
To let in more ambient light we’ll slow down the shutter speed even more. As we keep slowing down the shutter speed the images look better as there is more light in the background.
