You can blend or contrast the exposure of different areas and subjects in your image, each to great effect. How you choose to do so is your creative decision.
- [Speaker 1] All right, now that we understand…the effects of strobe power, shutter speed,…and aperture on the exposure of our wide-angle shots,…we're going to take a look at how you can blend…the foreground and background with each other,…and both can work to great effect,…as we're about to see.…It's ultimately your creative decision…which path you choose.…- [Speaker 2] So in this first example,…this is a blended image.…So what we mean by blended image is…the foreground exposure basically blends…into the background exposure.…So you can't really tell where the strobe ends…and where the natural light begins.…
And this is opposed to a contrasting image.…So here the foreground subject obviously…is standing out against the background subject.…We can see where the strobe light ends,…because of the absence of the natural lighting…of the background.…- [Speaker 1] But I like that the torch in the…background has a kind of integrating effect.…- [Speaker 2] So this is definitely something…you want to decide before you shoot.…
