BALANCING LIGHT SHOOTING THROUGH THE SUN

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 16 june 2016

With the kind help of beautiful Sofia, I was able to finally test my portable one man standing setting of my Godox Witstro 360 AD fixed to my backpack.
I was looking for a solution to carry this practical powerful little light with me single handed at all times while being able to move around.
And with trials I am getting there !

Right now my problem is that I have an awkward access to the light and have to look upon my shoulder to double check where it’s aiming at.
Once this problem will be fixed (I still haven’t got any idea how) my system will be quite practical.

I have one moneymaker belt to carry my D4s on one side and a backpack from which the light pops out without being too ridiculous.

I tried to shoot these 2 lovely daughters of mine a couple of days ago but lately they seem to be running on hatred fuel towards each other and I couldn’t get them to behave even for 10 seconds.
I quickly gave up the idea to do anything serious with them and called on my friend Sofia to get a proper half hour to try the light.

And boy I wasn’t disappointed ! The light is clearly powerful enough to shoot with a 50mm for portrait framing.
That means that if you stand 2 to 3 meters away from your model you’ll get plenty of light, evenly diffused even shooting through the sun ! I tried with more distance but results are not as spectacular.

For a direct light with hardly any modifier, the bare bulb flash gives a very pleasant light at a very nice temperature, I am very happy with it ! As for Sofia, she is a real pleasure to work with, she is fast, she communicates at a glance (better than my Spanish I guess) and looks amazingly great in almost all her shots !

In most of these shots, the light was set at full power or 1/2 power.
The natural ambiant light was high setting sun at 7pm in June in Andalusia.
Here sun sets around 10pm right now.
