Outdoor Portraits with High Speed Sync

Let me tell you upfront: This video is not about using your speedlight outdoor as strong main light so that your photos look like surreal stuff from another planet, which is obviously located in the a multi-sun solar system. It is also not about going into the desert and trying to knock out harsh midday sun and overpower it magically with a flash. Nope. This is about adding a touch of light to your subject outdoor. Just enough to make it beautifully stand out from your background. Mild enough to keep your photo looking natural and not flashy in anyway.  It’s about the type of photo that is perceived as a natural light photo, but then again it got this little extra vibrancy, which makes it stand out. That’s what we aim for here.



I wish you good light!
