In the images below I began the scene with a general shot and realized the scene needed flash and compensation.
I shot it again and saw that I needed to balance the ambient and flash a little tighter - it looked good - but not quite as realistic. Then for the last shot I noticed if I lifted the EF-20 flash head up just a smidge I could avoid the hotspot on the rock below his feet. I think this looks the most realistic. Of course several of them are acceptable and the choice is subjective.
I began with ISO 500 and 1/85th @ F/2.0 and ended at 1/60th @ F/5.0.
|Natural light with no flash. Scene is ugly for highlight detail and hat shadow|
|Not as natural as can be|
|Note light on rock below feet|
|Rock now naturally lit|
