First Light


Posted on Fri 16th Jun, 2006, 2:32pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/25, Aperture: f/4,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: Wireless, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM, Focal length: 10mm,
Captured: 3rd June 2006, 4:35am,

So I was stumbling back to our B&B in Whitby at around half four in the morning and I already had my wireless flash thingy in my hand because I'd been doing that Dracula shot. I saw this tin on a windowsill and thought I'd put the flash down next to it so it was cross-lighting the can and see what it looked like.

Turned out better than I expected.

I'm not sure if the can looks a little under-saturated. Better than over-saturated, mind. I think the curtains are flippin' gorgeous.

Angela. Double-post she wrote. Or sort of. The flash works - looks as though it's just catching either the first or last of the light. And the diagonals from the window frame, to the sill and the bricks adds a certain dynamism.

And the reflection adds a certain brooding.

yeah the flash works because its wirless so you it doesnt look like its coming from the camera, just looks like headlights from a car or a street light or something

Great lighting ;) not sure about the DOF, should be a little more either way, but I really like the sharpness on the left side :D.... whats the flash you've got??? I'm just enquiring round cos I think its time I finally got a decent one

My colleague Skee, does this same technique with his flash. Check out his stuff at www.skee.shutterchance.com he's been going on about it, the flash technique that is.
