Making it Shine
Once again I was called upon to make it shine...sunshine that is, all golden like. You see, we photographers are called upon to know the light and use it. But what happens if there is no light, or its not the kind of light you want? Well, its imple. You make it happen.
The late afternoon light we needed for this 'signature' shot of the golf course was just not happening for us. So I once again placed a few square centimetres of orange cellophane over an off camera SB800 flash and Voila! You have late afternoon light. Just ask the art director to hold the flash just out of frame...Combine this with my newly acquired Nikkor IF-ED 180mm lens and you have the shot.
