Join David Hobby for an in-depth discussion in this video The photo shoot, part of Lighting with Flash: The Basics.
Okay, so lighting-wise I've got everything in the frame. I want you…just like that; that's fantastic. And I am going to go ahead and include every light in the…frame to see--and what I really like about this and the surprise that kind of hit me…at the end, all that hard hot light is coming down and it's warmed up.…So, pushing this cool light in to fill the shadows makes this picture.…So yeah, look right up at the main light there for second. That's good.…Okay, so this, this picture was really fast on it's way to failing, and it's become my favorite…picture of the day, seeing these first early ones.…

I am having trouble problems. There.…I want to rim light those shoulder a little better.…I cannot emphasize the importance of experimentation and being willing to fail.…We had another shot that we were trying to do, and it's not that it was impossible to do.…
