Creating an Epic Shot

Trying to capture an epic shot requires skill in balancing the light. Too much in one area or another could ruin a shot. If you are able to balance the light just right especially when using a flash you really can walk away with some epic photos. I am going to show you the difference between lighting the background, lighting the foreground and how they look together when you use a flash.



The model’s face is fairly well exposed but the background in this image is overexposed.



Epic Shot

In this image, the background is well exposed but the model is underexposed.


In my final shot I kept the background well exposed while lighting the model’s face with a flash bender to create an epic shot.
