Model外拍(Location Portrait)_Gloria

天氣日漸溫暖炎熱,初夏已翩然到來,今天太陽炙熱且無風,雖然悶熱但非常適合在空曠的海濱外拍,不怕燈具被吹倒,找來攝影同伴阿賢幫忙,我們驅車來到桃園觀音鄉的海濱休憩海岸,model還是老朋友Gloria。

In the end of the Spring temperature is getting hotter and hotter, notifying the Summer is arriving, today the weather is very hot and windless, although there is not a comfortable situation, but for our shooting session the light stand can be more save against falling, I drove with Gloria who is again my model about one hour arriving the Sun shining beach.

今天的拍攝計畫是以”棚燈壓光”和”自然光”兩種方式來打光,背景的選擇為海邊四周的景觀,包括防空洞、風力發電塔,最後是海浪拍打的岸邊,此次攜帶新購置的Pau C. Buff牌攜帶式鋰電池,外型小巧非常輕便可提供200瓦棚燈的120v交流電力。

Today I plan 2 kind of main light as using the strobe to overpower the Sunlight and the ambient for nature light, the background are the existing landscape such as air-raid shelterwind turbine tower and the waving beach, I brought the newly bought portable ac power socket battery (Pau C. Buff) this time, which is very compact and can offer AC power to my 200w studio strobe, which provides more flash power than the speed lights.

第一段:首先我們選擇風力發電塔的入口及樓梯為背景,蘋果綠的塔身和無雲的藍天構成非常協調的背景色彩,Gloria的白色洋裝及膚色很自然的融入整個畫面,白色草帽和太陽鏡增添趣味,主燈加雷達盤呈現時裝感,設定200瓦棚燈光線來平衡環境光,將model移至塔底部以光滑的塔身為背景凸顯model的身材,以太陽光為主燈在相機的右方約呈45度,model左邊的陰影經淺色的塔身和地面的反光來呈現暗部的細節構成一非常立體的畫面,接著來到廢棄的防空洞,安排model座在面向海邊的長方開口,45度角的200瓦棚燈為主燈模擬陽光,與環境光線呈現自然協調,防空洞頂的平台是拍攝動態影像的不二場所非常有趣。

First section: The beginning section we select the ladder and the entrance of the wind turbine as the background, the apple green color of the tower and the blue sky get together harmony, the white clothing and skin color of the model are just merging in the image, white hat and sunglass increasing the fun, the main light is the 200w studio strobe with a beauty dish set to balance the existing light, then I move the model down to the ground, the strong sun light as the main light at the right of the camera about 45 degree angle to the model, the surface of the light color tower and the white ground are as the reflection at left as the fill, then we moved to a ruin of air-raid shelter, model is sitting at the front rectangular opening and the strobe installed 45 degree angle to the model mimicking the Sun light and balancing the ambient, I shot from inside of the shelter, later we were also doing some images of  jumping on the roof of the shelter .

第二段:結束上段拍攝我們移到海邊,初夏的陽光在下午3點並未如正夏時的炙熱,海浪一波一波拍打岸邊稍解了些悶熱的感覺,將棚燈架在沙灘的錂線上,降低拍攝角度並以蔚藍的天空為背景,提高棚燈出力、縮小相機光圈壓低炙熱的光線,雷達盤反射出均勻但帶些高對比的光線襯托出model帶有舞姿的漂亮姿態,有時在炙熱的陽光下,選取適當角度的環鏡光也能拍出自然光線的影像,Gloria的晚禮服與無邊的海岸在視覺上形成較強烈的對比。

Second section: When we finished the first section we move to the beach side, in the beginning of the Summer, the Sun is not burning out badly at 3pm in the afternoon, you feel cool to see the waves slapping against the shore, again the 200w strobe is the main light facing the Sun direction and install it on the crest of the sand, lowering the camera position and now the blue sky as the perfect background, I measure the ambient and raising the strobe power of one stop from f/16 to f/22 to light the model face and overpowering the Sun light, the beauty dish reflecting a even but a hard light over the model, I ask Gloria (who is a good dancer)to do some dancing pose for this lighting set up, since the bright Sun shine at that time, the ambient can be also as the main light, the model’s evening gown offers a great contrast with the opening sea shore.

第三段:已是下午4點,我要求Gloria走進海水,以日漸斜射的陽光為背景光進行最後一段的拍攝,由於太陽下山大約在6點半因此光線仍強,大約在f/16-f/18之間,因此棚燈須提高出力至約f/22才有壓光的效果,此次的攜帶型鋰電池發揮了不錯效果,即使在f/22也能維持約1秒左右的回電,Gloria 展現model專業,在水裡或座或躺在鏡頭前忘我的表現,使我欲罷不能的按著快門。

Third section: In this section the time is around 4pm, I ask Gloria to step in the sea, the Sun is getting down and become our background light, there is about 2.5 hours to the Sunset, the Sun light remain strong about f/16-f/18, for overpowering the Sun light, I raise the power of the strobe to f/22 and the AC power battery does a great job to offer the recycling stays in one second, Gloria seemed enjoying to stay in the water with her high school swimming suit, we did some great photos until the Sunset .
