Here’s a shot that was taken at dusk, with a Jinbei DC-1200 standing about 20 meters from Annemiek. There was still some ambient light, but not much, resulting in this contrasting look. The tree was standing right at the waterside, which is hidden in the blacks in this photograph.
Here is another one from the shoot with Annemiek at dusk. There was a Jinbei Discovery 1200Ws about 5 meters to her right, as you might notice from the hard shadows. The 1200Ws was not at full power though, that would be way too much.
Not too long after that we were asked to leave, since we were a bit too far from the walking path. 🙂
My second shoot with my new outdoor flashheads was with Annemiek, at de Blauwe Kamer. It was technically reasonably challenging to get a nice mix between ambient (sun/sky) and flash light. I like the effect this gives with the harsh light in combination with the sun setting.
Here, Renate is lying down in a warm environment. It looks idyllic, however it was around 8.30pm, it was 14 degrees, there was no roof and the place was dusty. 🙂 The apparent sunlight was really a flashlight, and actually the other flashlight coming from the back of her misfired. However, I found it just as sweet, given some corrections for the missing amount of light. Sorry for taking away the romantic side with the description, it’s the end result that has a gentle warm relaxing feel fortunately.
A few weeks ago I followed a workshop from Mark de Roo about lighting on location. It was inspiring, so I read about several types of flash heads and finally decided on a relatively low-cost Jinbei Discovery series.
Last Friday I went out with Renate to have a good at my first real location shoot with flashes. It was around 8pm, this floor actually had no roof anymore, but the ambient light is powered away by the flashes. One DC-1200 from the rear at low power.
Renate was eating dust almost literally, kudos to her for withstanding it to make this picture a reality. 🙂
