On this video, photographer Jay P. Morgan from the website the Slanted Lens goes to Gettysburg showing how to combine strobes with ambient light in a historical-like image.
Shooting at sunset can be exceptional in terms of lighting however you do have a short window of time and you need to make the most out of it – especially if you are trying something complex and trying to add some artificial lighting as well.
Morgan tries this image of a Lincoln at a cannon with several different lights – each lights a small part of the picture – one for the lantern, one for Lincoln and one for the cannon. The challenge is to shoot with all these light and the background. and the even bigger challenge – shoot the Lincoln model at a very long exposure of 1-2 seconds – not easy.
This isn’t the first video Morgan published on shooting at sunset with using TTL flashes which is also worth checking out.
