This one with Skye Nova was made a little later that evening, up on a walk-around area. The sky mixed well with the flash, although you do notice that the sky gets dark very quickly, and the flash output needs constant adjusting to be on par with the sky brightness.
Skye Nova is wearing a corset here, beautiful but making it hard to breathe. 🙂 Fortunately she lasted until the sun disappeared, after which we nearly got locked up inside the building. Luckily the guy who closed the door did another round before going home to sleep, and we managed to get out.
I don’t do outdoor shoots a lot, but steampunk requires a bit of scenery. This one was shot with Skye Nova (Laura) in de Burcht in Leiden. It was a warm evening which helped to prevent getting cold until the sun set.
This was taken with a single flash, set not too hard to mix in a bit of ambient (natural) light as well.
Xenia dropped by the studio two days ago; normally she’s more into more natural shoots with natural lighting, home backdrops etc, but this time we used the studio.
I used one of my favorite light modifiers, which is a gobo spot, without any silhouette in the spot, so it’s just a round spot. The lens was a Sigma 85/1.4, camera a Canon 6D. For the technically interested, ISO 100, f/2.0 at 1/1600s. The flashes normally don’t do HSS (high-speed sync) but I’m using Yongnuo YN-622C remote triggers. The flash itself is an old Linkstar LF-250 at low power.
