Midday Shoot at Blue Wahoos Park
Blue Wahoos Park is in Pensacola, Fl and is part of the Blue Wahoos Minor League baseball team. It was a bright day so natural light wasn't much of an option. These were taken with a fuji x-t1/56 1.2, x-t10/18-55 and x100s.
Thanks, it was good practice in case I get clients that want midday shoots.
Fantastic job on the OCF, great way to make these punch in a way that natural light would never be able to do at midday.
Number six is my fave
Thanks! I was pretty much underexposing the background and then using the appropriate flash power. Since I'm using mirrorless I get to see the exposure. Because I am underexposing the subject is usually dark so I take a couple of test shots to dial in the power of the flash and then just shoot.
I don't have a light meter so it isn't about what percentage of flash I need to use but what light modifier and how far away the light is from the subject.
The EVF of mirrorless is also great for using with ND since I see the exposure and compose. Shooting at 1.2 during the day and using strobes is handy on a midday shoot.
