Photo on the Go with Joe McNally
By Joe McNally
March 7, 2013
Join Joe McNally as he deconstructs the natural-looking speedlight lighting set-up from a shoot in Saint Lucia of the Eastern Caribbean.
In this episode of Photo on the Go, prepared exclusively for AdoramaTV, JoeMcNally explains how you can take a small speedlight and turn it into natural-looking daylight. He'll show you how he created the light in a scene using small flash units and made it look like it was natural daylight streaming through a window. Using this technique you can shoot more dramatic environmental portraits.
