This was a quick and easy one. Well not all that easy, since I forgot some part of the equipment and had to scrap a couple of photo ideas unfortunately. However: All I did here was to make use of some special features of the Fuji X100s camera. Basically in bright conditions (and its really summer now and the sunlight is massive) it’s hard to expose people and the background properly. Using a small flash, the cameras built in filter and it’s ability to sync flashes really fast, I was able to get some interesting exposures. See the comparison below. It’s a bit technical and this was just a test.
One normal exposure to the left. Then high speed syncing flashlight. See how much more color and detail you get in the sky and on the grass!
