Sunflower Season! One lens, one light, one reflector.

Overview:

On Sunday, I planned two looks with Tiffany and we shot the next day. All photos were done with one lens, one speedlite, and one reflector.

Challenge:

For most of my photography career, I shot in a studio, where light was easily controllable. I owned a speedlite, but never used it outdoors... let alone in broad daylight. My mindset was: "I won't be able to achieve the look that I want because this speedlite is underpowered, and I need Profoto B1's to do that kind of thing."

Granted, I had been thinking about getting Profoto B1's for the longest time, and I kept putting off shoots because of that very reason.

For this shoot, I challenged myself to use what I had and see what I could come up with. See the results and let me know what you think!

Takeaway:

Photography is about using what you have to its fullest potential. It is rarely about the equipment...
