Behind-the-Camera of Photojournalist Nic Coury in Monterey County, California.

January 25, 2009

Flash Light.

So I bought a small single shoot-through umbrella kit for my strobes. I did a few test self-portraits last night. I think they turned out pretty cool.

This was one of the first umbrella shots I did.



I cranked up the f-stops between f/8 and f/14 and gel-ed the main light (to the right of me) at 1/2 power with a grey tint and snoot-ed a strobe on camera at 1/32 power.

I went for a "weathered news photographer" look in my standard fedora.
