Here is another shot where available light was reflected utilizing cardboard and aluminum foil. I explain to the client why I use the cardboard and demonstrate the creativity of reflectiveness. They respond with “Wow” and are willing to put up with the bright light.
I don’t have a studio inside or out. What I do is find nice landscaping in housing subdivision or a park the neighbors come out and watch which is a great time to hand-out business cards.

This shot was made with a point and shoot digital camera and a 36" x 36" cardboard covered in aluminum. I was asked by some party goers to take their photos. This worked out good; I did not have an assistant so all of them took turns holding the home-made reflector, and this kept them occupied until their turn.
Midday lighting was a problem, here are the settings:
EXPOSURE METER…. SPOT
Camera ….Sony Cybershot

I found this photo in my archives, back in the day of film I shot this with 1600 asa film which gave me the grainy effect. This firefighting operation was for some airport firefighters, they are required to have a live fossil fuel fire each year. The problem with this type of operation is it is not allowed in any location, so they had to travel to Yuma Arizona from Tucson and back the same day. This made for a long trip.
This lovely bride was taking one final look into the mirror moments before the wedding ceremony. With this shot I pointed the flash over my left shoulder and bounced the light off the ceiling as you will notice in the mirror.
Tv 1/30 Sec
As you may have already figured out, Photoshop is my favorite tool besides the camera itself.
The photo is of a bloom that only opens at night on a cactus in my back yard, the Pollination of theses plants are done by bats at night which is why they bloom in the dark.
I will post some of the settings when possible.
