These are the last few pictures I took with my D3 before it shat itself over the weekend during a wedding. I like to rage at wedding photographers who shoot only with natural light. It shits me to tears because they stop shooting when things get dark. Fair enough, if you're a newbie, then by all means. But if you're charging in excess of $2,000, I expect you to know how to use a flappin' flash. /rage I do prefer to have e-sessions on sunny days, just in case the wedding day is rained out. But rainy days also have their moments. I like the rain. It adds drama and character to the context. It is a bit of a hassle, but the results are still the same. To add some warmth to a dull overcast day, I put on the full CTO gell that came standard with my SB910 and used it as the rim light all day. It adds a nice warm glow (as opposed to the blue cold colour when the speedlight is not gelled). The photos below are a mixture of the 180mm (f/3.5-4 mostly) and 24-70mm (mostly wide open). Backlight (SB910) triggered using Phottix Strato's. AF on AF-C, focus assigned to AF-ON. Shot in full manual exposure. Everything on evaluative/matrix metering. All edited using LR4 and vscoFILM. #9 has +30 clarity. #10-12 had a SB900 inside a 60cm softbox, held by assistant (kwax) standing 3 meters away from the subject. Settings per photo are in the title. 1.1/640 f/2.8 ISO100 2. 1/200 f/3.5 ISO160 3. 1/125 f3.5 ISO200 4. 1/100 f/2.8 ISO100 5. 1/200 f/2.78 ISO100 6.1/160 f/2.8 ISO640 7. 1/160 f/2.8 ISO640 8. 1/100 f/2.8 ISO640 9. 1/100 f/2.8 ISO640 10. 1/15 f/2.8 ISO200 11. 1/15 f/2.8 ISO200 12. 1/15 f/2.8 ISO800 Give these settings a go on your next shoot. Chimp. Then think of the exposure triangle to correct for what's wrong. Any questions? PS - Totes should buy a SB910 if you're sitting on the fence. Much better than the SB900. And DWI sometimes, have them on random specials! Win!
