A cloudy day made "sunny" !

Today I want to show an image that combines 2 things I have spoken about in my blog lately. Leading lines (see Sep.24th), and the Vector 3 mill candle light lamps (see Sep.27&28th). The veil of a bride often has a tendency to look grey or blue if it doesn't have a good backlight. On this cloudy day I added 2 "suns". One pointed at the back of her veil, the other in an angle on her face. The cloudy day gives a soft nice light on the dress and nature. If I had used a flash it would have messed up my foreground, but also the details in the dress easily. One of many things I love about these spot lights is how I can see exactly what I do, they give you so much control. If I had added no light we would had a grey veil, dark eyes, less perspective. I just love any light–tungsten, HMI, metal hallide–that makes you truly see what you are doing. Get out there and try some new lights, car lights, street lights, store window lights............07%20Liz%20B%20in%20field.jpg

Hi Kenneth - we must meet up next time you're in England. How do you power lights like this when you're out in the field? I've managed to set up a very good portable 'studio' flash set up for locations, but I'm still searching for a good constant light solution. There are some great little lights out there, but how to power them...?

Phoenix, I think the lights he is speaking of are like battery powered flashlights (torch?) but VERY bright. Rechargeable, high power hand held spot lights. 3 million candle power is a lot of light.
