Nikon D3 + Nikon 35mm f/2D – f/8, 200 ISO, 5aeb (workflow on my blog) – Michael James – http://www.hdriblog.com – http://www.digitalcoastimage.com
You got 5 exposures with them standing that way? Did you have to mask a lot?
Shit… I forgot to put in the description that I had the D3 set to continuous shooting at 9fps and had the flash fire on the first frame. I ended up (if I recall) only using the first three or four frames. I know I didn't need the last one with the over exposure. The flash can't recycle at that speed so only the first shot gets lit.
I forgot to mention that I think I only ended up using the first 3 to 4 frames of the 5AEB and had the flash set to fire with the D3 set at 9 frames per second. The speedlite can’t recycle at that interval so it only has power for the first frame.
Also, I override my camera defaults to have it bracket from under exposed to over exposed for all my sequences. Personal preference, but shooting for a scene like this it is the best practice for best results.
Michael, great shot and excellent tips!
Great use of flash as a strong fill in.Works really well with the sun going down behind to create a lovely portrait. Grant
