Thanks to Kyle Glen for assisting.
I was inspired by the publicity posters from the recent Sherlock Holmes film and tried to recreate the style and feel of the posters.
The shots where taken on a Canon 7d with the colour temp set at 2700 K and the flash unit used where Bowns gemini 500r for the backlight and a 250r for front light.
I wanted to keep a cold feeling and used the colour temperature on the camera to add to the blue tones.
I explained to the delegates the way in which I measure the ambient light at the scene and how I calculate the flash exposure.
The most important thing in shooting with 2 light sources ( ambient and flash ) is to try retain the atmosphere and feeling of the shot and not overlight with your flash.
