Model外拍(Location Portrait)_Li Ting_觀音
The model I invited today is Li Ting who has been several times in my portrait shoots, we drove about 40 minutes to a beach area in the northwest coast of Taiwan,
in Summer the tropical weather here caused a lots of storm (so called Typhoon), the scenario is sometimes the burning sunshine and then heavy rain shower coming behind, but today it turns out to be a cloudy weather, the random rain shower is sticking because of the “Tai Fong” effect and no Sun light existed, the cloud is edging low letting a high contrast lighting sky, the dark grey sky shows a kind of subtle mood.

第一段：本段剛開始時雲層越來越低我要莉婷站在小徑與陽光大約呈45度的位置，將Quantum flash t5dr 閃燈立於小徑邊與陽光同一方向而非反方向並與model呈約30度角，使照射在model身上的陽光利用閃燈的光線延續至model的左邊，使整個打光呈現自然而不衝突，拍不到20張天空不作美開始飄雨，接著傾盆大雨傾洩而下而不得不中斷拍攝，回到車上時全身已找不到乾的地方，由於陣雨不斷無法打燈，利用大雨稍歇的空檔時間拍些自然光的照片。
First section: Just at the starting moment of the session, the cloud was getting lower and lower looking like it will rain right away, I ask the model standing in the pebble path about 45ﾟto the ambient, a Quantum flash t5dr flash is set by the side of the path in the same side with the ambient about 30ﾟ to the model, letting it replaces the ambient as the lighting to the left side of the model, so the whole lighting become nature, a downpour started after about first 20 shots, the session interrupted and we have to move back to the car with no where dry of our bodies, we did some shoots afterward in between the rain with only the nature light.
第二段：由於大雨時下時而停，我們移到一防空洞內以便大雨時可以躲躲，同時利用防空洞的垛口為拍攝點，我要莉婷坐在垛口上利用雨停的空檔使用一只 Canon 600 ET RX 閃燈在防空洞外，放在model的右前方約45度角處，相機由防空洞內向外拍攝，背景為陰暗的海岸，主題是以閃燈取代陽光營造陽光西下的感覺，因此在自然光不良的情況下如何打光來營造影像的氣氛是有無限的創意空間，由於陣雨不斷為能不中斷拍攝，我在燈架上安裝一雨傘架以防閃燈被雨淋，這是一個很好用的工具，也可裝在相機腳架或背包背帶上，在雨天可空出雙手來拍照。
Second section: The heavy cloudy sky and random shower forced us to a shelter in this session, I decide to use the opening of the shelter and ask the model to sit on the platform of it, I put a Canon 600 ET RX outside the shelter and again about 45ﾟto the model, I shoot from inside the shelter out with the beach as the background, the flash mimics the Sun light which should be a creative lighting idea when no good ambient is provided in the cloudy weather, I was forced to use a umbrella holder then since the unstopped raining during the shooting, this is a good accessory for shooting in the rainy day, and can be also used on the tripod or locked on your backpack belt which can let you shoot with free hands.
Third section: Now the rainy sky was getting dark quickly in the last session, I ask model standing against the wall of the shelter’s entrance, took some shots with the residue ambient light, the lighting is the same as the last session, we did some standing pose shoots.
