Portable studio lighting

Before started to working with the lights we metered for the lighting in the lounge with just available light coming in through the windows. These images allow you to see the lighting conditions we were working in.

This photo was exposed for the scene outside of the window.                                                    ISO:400 f/3.5 1/100 sec

This is a photo of the room using the same settings from the photo of outside the window , this means the image is correctly exposed for outside the window. This image also allows you to see how much light is being cast through the window into the room.

These images were taken using portable studio lighting in the lounge and an umbrella was used with the light as a diffuser. I changed the shutter speed and ISO to effect how  the lighting from the window appeared in the images and how the flash effects the images. Before we could take any images we had to swap the battery as the one we had was faulty and the flashcubes we had refused to work so we ended up using triggers to set off the flash.

ISO: 400 f/3.5 1/60 sec              The flash whited out a majority of the image.

ISO: 400 f/11 1/125 sec                  In this image you can very clearly see the umbrella and flash in the background in the window and the image is still very bright and the colours appear boosted compared to how they looked in person.

ISO:200 f/11 1/30 sec Changing the ISO as well as the shutter sped has lead to background outside the window to become more visible instead of washed out.

These photos were taken in a different location still using the single studio light set up with umbrella being used as a diffuser for the light.

We then moved to another location where we used a different brand of lights which had a battery able to power two flash heads which were activated using triggers.
