Bootcamp Day 2

Here are a few images from day 2. I demonstrated a few different lighting techniques. The first uses a tungsten colored warm gel over the flash which is fired through a 45" diffuser disk. I set the camera to tungsten to match the flash and this makes the background go blue - because it is unaffected by the flash, but keeps the subject neutral. I used the new Lensbaby Composer.

The shots by the fireplace were done to demonstrate how to mix flash and ambient lighting indoors. I again used the SB900 fired through the diffuser. It was wireless TTL. Again we put a tungsten gel over the flash and set the white balance on camera to Tungsten. This allowed the flash to match the color temp of the ambient light in the lodge for a natural balance between flash and ambient.
