If you happen to photograph a woman who has a long hair, you should be more vigilant. If you neglect the hair and focus on the facial features and other body parts only, the outcome may not be as satisfactory as you expect.
The best trick you can try when capturing a portrait of a long-haired woman is to leave her hair to one side. Such approach will make it easier for you to focus. The hair of the subject should be placed at the opposite side of the key light source. For instance, if the key light is placed towards her left side, the hair should be on the left side and vise versa. Otherwise, parts of her hair can leave unnecessary shadows on her face.
In certain cases, you will have to make your existing moonlight appear to be much larger. This happens often particularly when you are trying to photograph someone in a relatively dark area. Whenever there is a little ambient light and you still want the shot to be a perfect one, you have to use a Five in one reflector.
It is true that the main purpose of a reflector is to reflect the existing light. However, you can use such reflector as a normal bounce surface for the flash you use. If you don’t have a ceiling or similar surface to bounce the hot shoe flash, you can create such surface with a reflector.
When you have to shoot a concert with energetic musicians, you will come across with complex lighting situations. In most of the cases, the musicians will appear too bright compared to the background; this brightness will be too much. Your aperture priority will not be able to handle this brightness.
To get the best possible output, in this case, you will have to go for an underexposure. You should consider at least a stop’s underexposure to get more details of the performer. Rest of the details in the shadows can be highlighted during the post production process.
As long as you get the subject exposed perfectly, you don’t need to worry even if you don’t do it in HDR mode.
