Sunrise and sunset are both amazing times to own a camera. Take advantage of this light as often as you can. There is a reason that it is called “golden hour”. It will turn your photos into gold.
If you want the sun to set behind your subject in your photo, you may want to add a supplemental light source or reflector to keep your subject’s Face out of shadow. In this example we use a Paul C Buff Einstein camera left with a large white umbrella and 1/2 CTO gels to Color it. The head was powered with a Vagabond Mini. The reason to use CTO gels in this case is to warm the Light coming from the strobe to match the Color temperature of the sun.
In this episode we cover:
Adding Detail in Shadow – You will learn a great way to add detail and brightness to an image while not affecting the highlight range. You can also Color this light to more closely match the sunset Color.
Remove a Subject – Learn how to combine multiple exposures together quickly to remove a subject and even match exposure.
Add Light Flare – Add just enough Light flare to make the image more painterly-like, but not enough to make your subject throw up from the “Too Much Lens Flare” effect.
