Portraits – Wirdalina

Canon EOS 1D Mark III
EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L at 46mm
1/300 f/4 ISO 100

Learning to utilise off camera flash has given my portrait work a new dimension. The easiest and quickest setup for me is to use 2 speedlites, 1 master mounted on camera as fill and the other as a slave acting as the main light. The master defaults to group A and set the slave as group B, set the speedlites on eTTL-II and control the ratio between the groups, make sure the main is placed to give a nice shadow effect relative to the fill on camera flash and there you have it.

With that out of the way, I can then concentrate on composition and directing the model. This is an impromptu photo session which lasted all about 5 minutes and I wanted to vary the look as much as possible. I used a lot of photoshop filters and effects here as an experiment.

I wished I had more time…….
