Throughout the past month, we have had some exciting contests going on. So, what better time than to announce them all right here. Now, if you didn't win - do not fret! We have contests going on all the time (which reminds me, we need to have another BOW again here real soon). So with that said - our winners!
To create dramatic light with Speedlites, you need to think about two things: where you put your flash(es) and how you control the ambient light. If you move your Speedlite to the side, then you’ll be creating shadows for the camera. Think of shadows as being the way you reveal shape and depth in a two-dimensional photo. If you use a fast shutter speed, then you’ll dim the ambient light — which increases the effect / drama of the light created by your Speedlites. Compare the shot above to the shot below and you’ll see what I mean.
