Out Of The Darkness


One of the most used means of subject isolation in photography is through the use of a wide aperture, but it is by no means the only way to do so. Today's image was taken at F22, using the light from off camera flashes to eliminate the background. I simply eliminated the background by making the subject brighter than it. This solution might not work under all circumstances, because you can only work within the flash sync of your camera. You could push the shutter speed higher, but doing so would actually cause less light to hit the subject as well. In this case I shot the subject matter during dusk, so that the ambient light was low and soft.
