Fashion Photography Outdoors using Off Camera Flash

Watch this photography tutorial video to learn how to mix daylight with flash when photographing fashion or portraits outdoors.

Fashion photography is one of the most exciting fields. Every photographer I know has tried to go that direction at some point of their career. Fashion changes every season and so does the style of fashion photography, so it always has room for creativity and innovation.

Earlier we discussed set ups to photograph a model in the studio, today Nick Carter will demonstrate (in the video above) how to photograph a model outdoors.

Fashion photography outdoors can produce very rewarding images, the majestic appearance of the landscape complements the beauty of the model.

Using Off-Camera Flash:

When shooting a model outdoor especially at a remote location, taking as little equipment as possible, will make your job easier. Using an off-camera shoe mount flash as your lighting is the ultimate light-weight solution.

Position the flash on a stand as close to the subject as possible to avoid seeing the unit itself standing in your shot. To secure the shoe mount flash onto the stand you will need a clamp with a shoe mount adapter.
