Image Hotness

A small technical success…

Here is a shot from Tuesday night. I did a series outdoors and wanted to capture the lights of the city behind a model. To use a fairly low ISO I had to use long-ish exposures, this one was 2 seconds. The flash froze the foreground, although there was enough ambient light that most of shots were a little blurry because it’s impossible to stand totally still. Next time I’ll choose a VERY dark spot for the subject to stand.

In the interest of full disclosure I had to adjust the color balance of her skin afterwards. I did try a few gel shots, but the gels were too saturated and should have been lighter. Live and learn.
