Fresa is my model in May, since we have done many studio shots recently, so we moved out for something different, the location of the Chang Kai Sheck Memorial Hall is a great location with the building of both Theater and Concert Hall and the ancient corridors, the huge pillars of the building and the corridors with the classical windows equipped a extending prospective view, the palace style Theater and Concert Hall are perfect for the Sunset scenario.

(Stage one): The weather in this afternoon is not quite satisfied for the shooting, no colorful clouds stay in the sky, I use tri-speed lights bracket with 3 Canon speedlites as the main light, the light on the model become brighter as a overcast sky, the light on the model is popping out against those giant pillars, but the modern building in the background leave a little cluttered.
(Stage Two): The weather is now becoming drizzle, we move to the second shooting location an ancient corridor, to balance the getting dimming ambient, I put on a octa softbox to softening the main light (f/4), the glimmer light at the end of the corridor as the kicker, I put one more light at the back of the model as a rim light for enhancement.
(Stage Three): Although closing to the twilight, there is still occasional drizzle presented, now we move to the pond in the garden, and choose the building of Concert Hall as the background, the twilight is the fill light, the main light is the speed light with a octa softbox, the light on the model become brighter compares to the ambient, for a balancing lighting from time to time, I open the shutter to match it, the shoot through umbrella become a prop but also block the drizzle, the bluish twilight ambient makes the model skin warmer.
