Here are all the portraits I shot of the models after they had been styled by hairdressers from OI Hår og Velvære before their show at Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel in November.
Orbis Ring Flash
On this particular part of the job I did for OI I used a flash modifier called a ring flash from OrbisFlash.com. It is suppose to make a soft light with a soft shadow behind the subject. It did work on some of the photos I shot, but not everything. I had the flash set to TTL 0 – -0,3 and sometimes -0,7. As with regular auto-flash-settings you will get some difference in exposures depending on what people wear and the ambient lighting. The camera was set to a shutter of 1/125 sec, the aparture at f/3.5 and the ISO at 400. I am going to experiment a bit more with this flash upgrade to find out how much power is needed to get a decent exposure on a 35mm lens. If somebody knows some manual sweet-spot-setting, please let me know.
