Why “Stack” 2 Flashes?
While the final images can be created with one powerful light source, the beauty behind this flash tutorial is adding a level of finesse and production value to your image.
First Light Source = Fill the Scene
The first light source is used to provide controlled, directional light for the scene. Many photographers stop here and take it straight to Photoshop. But we teach you that there is so much more you can do.
Second Light Source = Add Dimension
The second light source, “stacked ” in front of the first, adds dimension, shape, and in-camera dodging and burning. This perfects the image and leaves the viewer wondering, “how did they do that?”. Creating this level of ligthing is what differentiates a beginner from a master.
This technique results in the image below, straight out of camera (before any post-production).
