Today the final blogpost in the Duin en kruidberg series.
For this setup we used a nice room inside the hotel.
The challenge here was to mix the ambient light with the strobe.
The trick is actually pretty simple, you meter the lights in the room and adjust the strobes for this.
Determine the slowest shutter speed you feel comfortable with (or bring a tripod) and the aperture you want to shoot with and meter the lights, in my case I used a reflective meter reading of the lights and opened up app 2.5 stops to still keep some detail in the lamp-hoods but also create the idea the lights are actually working.
As a light source I used an Elinchrom Quadra mounted with a 70Cm Deep octa and the Honeycomb grid.
