FAQ Equipment – Dubai Portrait Photographer

Ok, so I know most, if not all of my posts to date have all been sneak peeks for clients but I have been asked this question quite a few times now so I thought maybe I should blog about it and put it out there for all of you who are interested in photography […]

Jeff - On a bright sunny day, it is pretty hard to get the background and the subject both equally exposed. The area the sun hits must be washed out and the shadows must be pretty dark. I think the best solution here is to use a really large white reflector (4 ft. diameter) to soften the shadows on your subject. A powerful external speedlight like the sb900 would work too.June 22 2012 – 1:08 am

Dennis Soans - Sarah:

I am a cousin of Joanna and Adrian whose weddings you photographed. I am simply amazed by your photos and was hoping you could help me with a difficult lighting photo scenario:

My wife and I visited a beach in Hawaii recently and I attempted to shoot a picture of her. My intent was to keep the far background in focus as well as the subject (wife). I metered in Manual using the Nikon D5100 with prime 1.8 and f/16,ISO100,1/100 and wide focus. My built-in flash has a GN of 43ft at 100ISO. Although the background was well exposed my wife’s face was underexposed by 2 stops. I understand that at f/16 I have to bring the flash within 3 ft of the subject. I guess I might as well use a point and shoot that I have since I can get everything in focus (due to small sensor) around f/8 or slightly lower.
What would you do in this kind of situation using a SLR and built in flash when on vacation (not much equipment)?May 26 2012 – 3:24 am
