Twilight Evening | Shot with Flash

When shooting at Twilight with an off-camera flash we want to use a constant light. We suggest using several smaller pocket strobes with a snoot to pinpoint light exactly where you need it. This portraiture is about highlighting the deepening blue in the sky, so we will place a CTO (color temperature orange) gel over our OCF to compensate for our lower color temperature in camera.

Use light to carve out the subject from the background and light your client to be brighter than the backlight or background. When we shoot in this way we can always exaggerate in post-processing and manipulate light to be larger or warmer later. But if we fail to set-up during the session, it will look unnatural to edit it into post.
