Using flash with daylight

Occasionally I give myself a bit of a challenge.

In the studio just using flash I find it fairly easy now to get a good image.

Outdoors with good daylight again with correct positioning and control of contrast its relatively straight forward.

This weekend I had a few ideas so with it being a hot summers day with bright sunlight, I gave myself the challenge of trying to come up with something different.

setting up the flash

A hot shoe flash on a light stand behind the model, with a gel and diffuser on it, and for the front a battery flash head with gels and a grid.

The model was my long suffering wife, while I took several shots changing the balance of daylight to flash, using grids, diffusers and gels. Its given me a few ideas for my next out door shoot with a professional model.
