Strobist technique Sunset flash photography

or copy the link

this video shows you a quick shoot I did with my girlfriend kim… sorry I mean film crew Kim, during a bright clear sky sunset the other day. Scotland is having some volcanic dust in the air due to iceland having a volcano erupting and it is giving us nice saturated sunsets. So here i go through the settings exposure, flash and white balance and then also NDgrad filter application with a sunset and portrait photo.

Good Stuff, I love these proper demos where you insert the actual stills as you change the settings

Mihajlo Velkov says:

Love the interaction with Kim. ;) You should do more of these and have her in them more. Very entertaining and informative.

Bill Pybus says:

Nice video. Thanks for sharing !

If he wanted to talk about composition, he would have said so in the title. Learn…dont be so eager to judge.

crispycritterz says:

Punch up the sky?
Use a -1 CPL and up the flash power by +1!
Scary how that works!

Mihajlo Velkov says:

man, you dont know basic rules of composition, rule of thirds, not leaving huge space over models head… i dont say you should always use them, but this is just really bad :S

GeneEdgarPhotography says:

they make things 10x easier but they aren’t needed.

great job as always mr dom

TheFalseCover says:

it wasn’t a fashion shoot, he was out with his gf. If the word didn’t come to his mind does not mean he is not professional. btw professional means he gets paid not that he is good. (and I think he is good also)

Ismo Mattila says:

“negative number thing” .. really professional…

Austyn Cunningham says:

1/20,000th of a second!!! What camera do you have?

Matthew Pyle says:

Which Nikon body are you shooting with in this video?

Jimi Aditiajaya says:

what manfrotto type do you use? for tripod and head…

rodrigo salas alzamora says:

Hi, i´m Rodrigo, from Peru and sorry about this question, but i´m new in photography…so, does the ultra density filter is the same as the polarized filter? thanks!

kapsico says:

give her a tripod 😉
Nice tutorial Dom! 😉

Legacylout says:

Thats not to say they are not useful tho 🙂

Dombowerphoto says:

cant say i have ever used a light meter at all throughout my photography career. 

Emily Worthington says:

I was recently told to buy a good light meter. Until yesterday I had never heard of one. I did a little research and found they were popular when people used film. I have a DSLR; Do I really need a light meter? :/

UrVideos002 says:

The exposure on subject doesn’t match the background – it looks oddly unnatural. Why is that?
