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.

All you need is love… and light

Wedding dance images are always a favorite since the day is coming to a close and the stress is now gone. Time to relax and enjoy the moment. Add a Canon 580 EX2  off camera flash plus another 580 EX2 on camera bounced off the ceiling synced with Cybersync radio triggers and let the emotions flow.

 May you continue the pursuit of happiness and sometimes pause to just be happy.
