thank you for your comment. i really like your work that you post here. a lot of you guys inspire us wannabes to get off our duffs and try things.

time for the dumb question. what does "fuller" mean. more coloring? the sun higher in the sky? actually see the sun in the shot?

you might want to invest in a warming gel for your flash, to make the color temp of the flash more closely match the setting sun. Here' what it would look like:



The gel you want is from Rosco, its called Bastard Amber, and looks like this:



If you find something similar (or bounce your flash into gold California Sunbounce's like Rolando does) it will probably work just fine. The idea is to warm up the light one way or the other. Of course if you can just bounce the sunlight into the shot, that will work too, but its hard to do and get enough intensity to balance the background and be able to stop down the background to get some saturation.

BTW, the thing about your shot is that if you're going to shoot at "golden hour", the idea is to make it "gold". Putting a cool flash on your model and having the sky be so light, does not really give you the effect of "golden hour" that people talk about. Here's another shot at "golden hour" with only a silver reflector for fill - because its reflecting the warm color light you get within that last hour or less, or daylight.

the thing that doesn't work for me, and maybe this is just me, but when you're cropping or framing there's a point where it doesn't work, i.e., once you go below mid-thigh, it doesn't work until its a full body shot.

ya know i always wondered about that. i just figured you guys got that "warm" look from the metering during that time of day and if i bumped my color temp to 6,000 (which i did as recommended in the article) i would end up with similar results. i did read about the cali disc in the tip section when he shot with the dynalite jr. but i didnt even know that gel for a flash existed. great tip. TY

jimmy. i struggled with that in the PP for a long time and went ahead and did it anyway. i couldnt put my finger on why i went with this version of cropping, but i did. probably why my pool game is so bad i know somethings not going to work but i go ahead and hit the ball anyway.

here is probably what it should look like.

Good effort, take all the comments and use them, they are all good!Now for a little different slant try rotating you and the model 180 degrees, the you really have sweet light and no need for fill flash, but no sunset! Now I'm really confused where is the beach in St Louis, that ain't the mighty Mississippi!

Regards,
Dusty
