Watch Joe McNally set up a model shoot on location, using a mix of ambient light and flash. By adding a Speedlight to the natural light of the location, and controlling color using white balance settings and gels, Joe creates a natural looking scene—whereby the flash adds to the mood, shaping the image with light and shadow.
Note: Camera dial configurations and designations can vary from model to model, so please be sure to check your manual for specifics.
