“I used one 800watt redhead which was too bright and created harsh shadows on the subjects. I eventually turned it off to film the rest of the reception.”
I’m surprised you got the chance to shut it off……. 800 watts in the eyes would cause alot of people to react, badly.
Toasted Buns….. Surgically Removed….. you see where I’m going right?
bounce the light, or maybe place the light behind your subject, and use a bounce card or reflector to bounce some light towards your subject….
then there’s softboxes, umbrellas, dimmer switches, snoots, grids, gel.
too much to learn about lighting in one post.
