I get a lot of questions about lighting photos even during the day. Usually it’s from clients who look at me funny as I drag flashes out while the sun is shining brightly. These were from a shoot tonight and I thought they nicely illustrated the difference even one light makes.
This was shot with available light.
Each of these was taken minutes apart. Just the addition of a little extra light makes a massive difference. The available light portraits aren’t bad at all, but the off-camera lighting adds an entirely new level to the work.
