We had fun today! We moved all over the Nevada Museum of Art with our models. This is Tony. we were on the fourth floor. Speedlight to camera right shooting through white umbrella. White reflector providing fill to camera left. The lovely gleam in the elevator doors was from the window directly behind us.
Can you take good portraits with just a single speedlight? Yes, you can.
Jacey – by the beautiful window in the lobby (to camera left). Speedlight through white umbrella to camera right for fill.
Darius – also by the window (camera right) with reflected light from speedlight to camera left for fill.

Tony and Viola. In open shade with speedlight through white umbrella at camera left.
Very professional looking shots…..I need to learn how to use my speedlight 😊
Do it. It can do so much!
I love your understanding of photo lighting and the fact that your results show it!
Just beautiful portraits, Clarissa. I am so jealous of the eyelashes on Jacey! What is a speedlight?
It’s a flash that can go on your camera, but best used “off” camera.
Thanks for your kind words! (PS – there is no “L” in my name…)
Very well done with these portraits, Carissa ☺
Thanks so much!
