    I want to do some model work outdoors and I was wondering if anyone had any info on shooting with a flash. I don't have any reflectors so it'll be straight flash in hopefully indirect sunlight.

    I metre the surroundings for normal exposure, and than use flash for fill? or is there another procedure I have to use.

    Also, any recommendations for make up? I won't be doing any close up stuff, just full body. She bought some bronzer, just so she doesn't look so flush from the flash.

    thanks!

    Can others edit my Photos:

    What equipment (camera & flash) are you going to use? I believe it's very common to dial down the flash a stop or so, for outdoor fill flash.

    As for metering, don't just metre the scene...Try different things. The model will most likely be the most important thing in the photo so adjust your exposure to get the model properly exposed.
