dz5t2159-Soft Light

Uploaded: July 26, 2013

Description

I used my SunPak Monolight strobe through the 24" white umbrella that I have. Wanted to see the clear distinction between the side of head with soft light and shadowed area. HEad shot at 45 degree angle shows soft light. Wiggy is softer and the details are less harsh. Camera on Manual mode, set shutter speed to 250. I used my model light to set WB and take first exposure reading. Took several shots, using my histogram to fine tune exposure. Could have moved light back more for softer look.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/250 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 85.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS-1D X
