August at Skyline

Post by Sharkb8 »

After a few years of shooting with a video light, I FINALLY got a strobe (and ikelite ttl convertor) for my little TG6. I took it out to Skyline a couple weeks ago to test it out. I definitely need some work on strobe placement but the initial results are encouraging.

Very nice, sharp, colorful, and well-composed. I'd be interested in what you conclude about video light(s) vs. strobe. I switched to video lights so I can shoot in burst mode (with a Sony A6000), which seems to get me at least 1 shot in a burst in focus. But I keep thinking I should try a strobe again and see what I get.

Looking good! The colors really pop. Are you using a custom white balance or auto?

I shoot in RAW with auto white balance and then correct in Lightroom. The strobe definitely helps with lighting and colors. I used to bump the saturation up a little when shooting fixed lights but now i actually have to go slightly negative sometimes to make it look realistic.
