Recreating sunlight with flash photography

Many times the challenge with photography is to make things look as real as possible with lighting since in the real world we never have “perfect” light for the shot that we need. I came across this video earlier that I wanted to share with everyone. In the video Joe McNally who is an amazing photographer and for those of you who haven’t come across him someone to watch if you want to learn lighting, a big master of light!

The color temp. of the light is always super key whenever using flash. If you don’t have a filter set yet they are really inexpensive and a necessity for every camera bag. The strobist collection of filters he mentions you can get at B&H (or Adorama) for only $8! Just click here: Rosco The Strobist Collection
