Thread: shooting subject higher than me

    Default shooting subject higher than me

    Hi all.
    How do I set my flash when I shoot subject on a higher platform (stage) without creating a dark shadow behind the subject. And worse the shadow appears larger than the subject.
    Kindly enlighten me, thanks

    you will need a very balanced ambient and flash exposure + diffuser (best would be bounce flash)... otherwise i don think so, unless you got additional flash to fill it up

    do you mean use a bounce card, tilt the flash 45 or 60 degrees? what if the ceiling makes it impossible for the light to bounce back?
