photo diary 23.4.2011: burial chamber

Yesterday I cycled to St Lythans to photograph a stone megalithic dolmen in the Vale of Glamorgan. It was a vary bright sunny day and I wanted a blue sky in my images. The sun was in its highest position, it had been that bright I couldn’t see blue sky with my eyes. Since I didn’t had the chance to be at this location during a other times of the day I had to work with what I got. I decided I’m going to overpower the sun with my two flashlights, it turned out to be huge fun. The stones who where built 6,000 BP (before present) had been vary patient with me using them for my exercises. I played around with different lightening techniques and balanced the ambient light with flashlight in different ratios, which allowed me to control the brightness of the sky in camera. I´m sure the gained knowledge will be useful in future strobist portrait photography sessions.
