Engagement Portrait Beavertail, Jamestown RI
I had the real pleasure of working at one of my favorite places in the world today, Beavertail in Jamestown Rhode Island! What a spot! I have photographed here many time and it is always a challenge to me to create a portrait that is beautiful and different from the last time I was here. I think I got it! and here is how I did it!
It was a SUPER windy day with bright sun almost straight up over head. Which if you don’t know makes it REALLY hard to photograph… So I put Jim and Nicole is a small patch of shade next to an old abandoned building. in order to get a good exposure for them I had to make the background to bright as you can see here
This test shot was taken at ISO 100, shutter of 250th at F6.3
Here is a crude drawing to show you the lighting set up
Then I dropped the exposure down to make the sky show the beautiful clouds behind them and put speed light off about 5 feet to my right with no modifiers just a bare flash at full power again ISO 100 shutter 250th, and F8 and here is what we got! Awesome !!! I am excited about this!
