The aims for this task were to use portable flash lighting along side with a wireless trigger.
The aims for this task was to take the studio to our chosen location showing that we could take the studio out to a location but can’t bring the location in to the studio.
For this shoot I choose to capture image of my class colleagues and create a variety of kind of portraits. We used a flashgun and a flash stand to hold the lighting and an umbrella as a diffuser which worked perfectly and spread the lighting as we wanted. We used flash triggers which controlled the lighting and shoot out when was controlled, although the triggers had some great sensors as you could stand anywhere with the room or far out as possible and the trigger still went of which was a big advantage.
As we had lighting coming through the ceiling I changed my aperture to f8 to f11 this depended on the lighting although the sun was kept and coming and going which was affecting the lighting as we had sky windows which made a big difference to the lighting. It was a good experiment it gave me an idea of how to control lighting as we had to lighting one was the flash gun itself and the day light which we had to work around and control the lighting ourselves.
Over all the shoot was very successful looking back and my shoots I managed to control the lighting very well at first when we had the day light coming through and alongside that the flashgun itself was very hard to make a discussion on how to control the lighting but once we got the hang of it we managed to do a range of shoots
