Low light and flashes
I want to show you guys a few different uses of flahses for a recent wedding
I wanted to take a few examples from a recent wedding that I shot in 2021 to show you guys a few different ways that I use flashes in lowlight to help me take some extra fun photos.
This couple reached out to me earlier in the year so our first meeting was on a rainy day in a cafe in the little town of camas. Their engagement shoot was on top of a mountain 3 hours from there. And the wedding was another hour away from the mountain. So being 3-4 hours of driving away from home I definitely needed to make sure that I was ready for any lighting scenario.
I normally have two lights that I use during a wedding but you have to take the environment into consideration when this is on the table. One problem that I ran into recently was the issue of my seven-foot umbrella being blown over by the wind. My gear is pretty tough but that is not something that you want heading to the ground with kids and even adults running around.
And not a set of photos is complete without the classic light behind the couple shot. This is a technique that I used very early in my photo career and I am happy to say that it was been improved since then to bring in a little bit more of the environment.
I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the photos in this example. I delivered a few hundred with the use of flash at this wedding but there were the ones where there was an attempt to make the flash obvious. There is a lot in motion for 2022 but I hope t see you guys there!
