AdoramaTV Presents "Photo on the Go" with Joe McNally
AdoramaTV has published a couple of really good "photo deconstructions" by world-renowned photographer Joe McNally. McNally primarily uses Nikon Speedlights in his work, but the concepts apply to photographers using Canon gear as well.
Mimic Big Natural Light With a Speedlight for Environmental Portraits
In this episode of Photo on the Go, prepared exclusively for AdoramaTV, JoeMcNally explains how you can take a small speedlight and turn it into natural-looking daylight. He'll show you how he created the light in a scene using small flash units and made it look like it was natural daylight streaming through a window. Using this technique you can shoot more dramatic environmental portraits.
The Secret to Shooting Dramatic Flash-Lit Portrait Photography That Looks Like Natural Daylight
In this episode of Photo On The Go, shot exclusively for AdoramaTV, Joe McNally explains how to create natural looking daylight through a window by bringing in light from two different directions. He explains how he sets up the light to mimic the look of diffused daylight using Nikon Speedlights while lighting details in shadows that might fall on a face if the subject is wearing a wide-rimmed hat. Watch as he shows where he places his light sources to capture all the details of two subjects with a moody midwestern flavor.
