Better Than Ambient Light: Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

Sometimes you get lucky with the light on a location portrait shoot and it's perfect for the look you're after. But as photographer Gavin Hoey sees it, if you're adding light to your scene you need make sure what you add looks better then what was already there.

In this video Gavin goes on location to shoot a vintage portrait in a field of long grass. After assessing the quality of the ambient light he uses off camera flash to make the recorded light a lot more dramatic.
