In this video tutorial, I will share with you my “open flash” technic.
I've been doing that kind of images for years, and have been commissioned by clients for those specific kind of images in the past.
I believe that mastering that technic will also give you a better understanding on measuring light, determinate exposure such as mixing two light sources together.
In this case, an ambient light together with a flash light.
In this Mastering Light Photography tutorial
You will see the entire shooting, as well as through an hour backstage video, I will also comment those backstage videos.
I’ll share with you the entire process, you’ll see me missing the right shoot and also getting it right.
As this technic also requires some practice, and as you probably will have to cope with some difficulties, I guess it will be helpful.
After all this shooting and technical part of the tutorial, and as usual, we will step into the post production process.
Using both Lightroom and Photoshop, after a selection of images, I will show you the way I merge those shot together in order to create some strong final visuals.
I will also show you some more advanced color grading technics that push the visual further, a question of taste...
I hope you'll like it and take advantage of it with your own practice.
