With my 430EXII of course. I tried to find a place far enough away from civilization so as not to bother anyone with a full power flash going off near their house. That said, there were some houses across the street, hope they didn’t care.
I wanted to try some back lighting tonight, which is a look I’ve never used before. So I drove around my hometown today, found a big tree in a field, and set up.
The almanac said to expect sunset around 7:50PM, so I got there a little early. I ended up with the flash on a light stand, just behind the tree. The stand was raised so the flash was pointed into the middle of the leaves, shooting through an orange gel at about 1/2 power. I shot wide open at f/2.8 to give the flash a little easier job of lighting the tree. Then I picked a shutter speed to give me the exposure in the sky I wanted. The result is:
Before I left, I noticed this field roller. I wanted a wide, close in shot with a warm main light. The flash was shot through an umbrella and a green gel, 1/4 power about 10 feet to my left. A 15 second exposure got me the ambient sky I wanted. I kept the white balance on the warm side on purpose.
