Create a Photo Studio ANYWHERE by Adam Lerner
You guys know how much Adam Lerner loves to crush ambient light! In this video, Adam sets up an outdoor photo studio with a 2-light setup for portraits. The idea is to crush the ambient light so that it doesn't affect our exposure and build our exposure from scratch - with flash!
For this video, I'm using the Cactus VF-60 flashes, a Cactus V6 wireless trigger, cactus CBW Softbox and Cactus 60" umbrella. I take you thru the process of getting my exposure using just the softbox. The idea is that I want tightly focused light on my subject's face, so I even grid the softbox to minimize spill.
Once I've gotten my exposure on the subject's face, I then add some fill light to my subject's form. I build this from scratch and then blend the fill to my key light.
Flash isn't as hard as you may think. It's about trial and error based on predictable results. I build my exposures and talk about what I'm doing along the way and pop up each image I take on the screen so you guys can see exactly what I'm doing. - said Adam-
