Outdoor Shot Overlooking Albuquerque
I recently drove from coast to coast. Along the way, I stopped to make some photographs. Here is one. The model, Jacqueline Faith, is standing on a bluff overlooking the city of Albuquerque. The second image shows where I have placed an accent light. It was around freezing and I had a running car a few feet away from her for quick refuge. This location is a half-mile or so off-road. At one point a survey crew passed us in a pickup truck. They may have wondered what we were doing or how I got my sedan out there.
Shot at f/16 and 1/160 second to balance with natural light. Flash is an Paul C. Buff Einstein powered by a Vagabond Mini battery. I had a Zeus Bi-tube with me but the Einstein (640W) was sufficient and less trouble to set up. Who says small flashes can’t be effective? I was also unsure what the effects would have been of the freezing cold on the higher-powered flash tubes. Trigger was a wireless Elinchome Sky Port.
