Advance Techniques and Process 2A – Flashgun development

The aim of this shoot was to development my understanding and technique of using a flash gun outdoors.

The aims of this task were successful. I have discovered that the use of flash with a diffuser, without a diffuser and with a soft box all add different depths and strengths of light to an image. Also the position of the flash has a large impact too by casting shadows around and upon the subject.
I now feel more confident with using flash and want to explore it further using reflectors. However I need more practice on where to position the light as some shadows I cast were too strong.

I am going to develop this technique further by using the flash in different locations and in different situations in order to create different lighting affects so that I become confident with different lighting settings and when and where they should be used.
