Setting the stage provides you with in-depth training on Photography. Taught by David Hobby as part of the Lighting with Flash: Portrait of a Beekeeper and His Bees
In this installment of the Lighting with Flash series, photographer and Strobist.com publisher David Hobby employs compact flash units to light an outdoor environmental portrait of a beekeeper and his bees. For the portrait, David balances the light from two strobes with late-afternoon sunshine, using a snap-on grid to focus the light from one strobe and adjusting his camera's white balance to add warmth to shade-lit skin tones.
Next, David addresses a more challenging subject: a humming hive of honeybees. Working quickly for obvious reasons, David uses his camera's automatic, through-the-lens (TTL) flash-exposure mode along with a ring-light adaptor for the strobe. The course concludes with some insights on David's approach to lighting and his choice of subject matter.
- Balancing daylight and flash
- Using a grid modifier to control flash lighting
- Using TTL mode to work quickly
- Choosing subjects that make good stories
