Multumesc frumos Ovidiu :)
Beautiful Dominic, regards!
How did you achieve the light in the children?..with a flash bellow him and a remote trigger? ..thanks
Thank you Dominic, for the detailed reply, love the result, well balanced, congrats ;)
Thank you Alexandre.
I prefer candid portraits of children and I find it impossible to obtain such photos with remote lights and stands or even a simple reflector/diffuser.
Here I used an external flash mounted on camera and set to 180mm (instead of the focal lens of 105mm), with no light modifiers (diffusion dome, gels). I have also decreased the luminosity of the foreground and on the sides of his face by using some "burn" gradients in Lightroom.
With shorter focal lenghts (50 and 85mm), for fill light I frequently use a Lumiquest BigBounce.
