Last week we were able to take a photography excursion to an amazing place named Bannack Ghost Town. Part of our assignment was to take at minimum five different portraits of the models working there. At least two of the photos had to be with auxiliary lighting. This is what I returned home with.
For this shot of the cowboy staring out of the window, I was able to use a strobe light and a reflector to get a balance shot of lighting. I didn’t do much in Photoshop except add a little contrast to the photo.
For this photo of the two Indians, we were able to take the shot using two different speed-lights placed on both sides of the camera . In Photoshop I only darkened the image and added contrast to the woman’s face.
