The Dark Side - Creating the Light and Controlling the Background
Mark takes you through the process of introducing off-camera flash, guiding you step by step to create images with real impact.
Recorded on location during a live workshop Mark guide the delegates and you through the process off how to introduce off camera flash into an image and how the final image guides the decision making process.
Mark starts by demonstrating a basic shot with natural light before introducing a complimentary flash to equal the ambient. From this base point mark now begins to dominate the natural light, and adjust the background, bringing in the sky, to introduce more drama. Finally Mark adds gels to the flash and adjusts the cameras white balance to further stylise the image and changes his lens to add further width and impact to the final image.
