Sunset on Lake Cochrane

Image and edit by Joyce Meyer

Available light photography is a perfect way to capture many portraits, but sunset is not a time to utilize this option. Without flash you either have a silhouette or muddy skin tones along with a blown out sky. Solution?  Add a flash to bring out the details. On this portrait I used a Canon speed light 580ex2 flash off camera, a cybersyc  flash trigger along with a Canon 580 ex2 with a Gary Fong diffuser on camera for a little fill.

ISO 100/ F8 aperture at 1/250th shutter to maintain detail and color in the sky.

Yesterday’s Dreams

Image by Joyce Meyer

Window light casts its shadow upon this young woman, as it did her mother and grandmother,  as she reflects upon the history contained within these walls.  The old wooden ironing board leans against the wall holding memories,  laughter and tears of generations past.
