Balancing Act

This one is all about balancing ambient light with fill flash which just happens to be one of my favorite things to do. In this shot I am using a minimal amount of gear, a single off camera SB600 flash triggered by Nikon CLS, better known as the Creative Lighting System. It’s automatic and fine tunable from the camera. I thought I might have issues with triggering the flash outside but it worked flawlessly. Of course noonday sun might interfere with the optical triggering but I have not tried that yet so I can’t say for sure.

Tech info: f/10, 1/250th, ISO 800. SB600 flash triggered with Nikon CLS off camera left.

  1. Mellow, ambient light and a feeling of peacefulness in the paddling. This is why we try to freeze a moment in time.
