See how epic lighting can transform your portraits

I never realized how you can work with auxiliary light outside. I always pictured them indoors, but they can do awesome things in creating epic lighting for your portraits! You have to mess with your settings a little bit more in order to capture a well exposed background and then utilizing the speed light to adequately light your subject. It’s cool to see the details in the background rather than just blowing out the background by shooting purely with the natural lighting.

Natural light settings (1/200; f/7.1; ISO 100)


Under expose for the sky settings (1/800; f/8; ISO 100)


Epic Light settings same as #2 but using a speed light balance the light on subject and background. Cool, right?
