Belle of the Ball

Nikon D70 @ 22mm, 1/30 sec, f/3.8, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

Well, it was my girlfriend's grad ball tonight... the main reason I bought the SB-800. And I have to say, it performed very well - I definitely feel better at having spent so much money on it!

This shot was taken after the meal, just as the sun had gone down. Love the results.

Again, John, what were your settings on the camera and the flash. More specifics would be great! Love your images and site ... keep it comin'!

Seshu, It looks like John is nice enough to leave all the exif information untouched in the published images.

John, this one is as amazing as usual. I'd be interested to know a little about your method. Was this another underexposed picture with flash to make the object "pop"? It's a wonderful picture.

Hey guys. Sorry for being a little slow in replying and updating.

A little more info... well, it was getting pretty dark at this point in the night, and so that probably added a little to the effect. Now, I shot this in manual, so I'm not enitrely sure what the ambient light would have read, but I'm guessing that it is perhaps a stop underexposed. I used the SB-800 in TTL mode and set it to -1/3.

However, I did do a little PP on this shot. The colours were fairly muted to begin with, but I desaturated the background a little more. I also added a vignetting effect to the shot which gives it that slight spotlight effect.

Hope this helps a little. Cheers for visiting again guys.
