Happy Tuesday! I shot this photograph during Unique Photo Photo Walk to benefit Parkinson Disease research at Liberty State Park in Jersey City on June 11. The 3 steps to creating this photograph with one speedlight.
Set your camera on manual exposure. Use your in-camera meter to get the proper exposure for the skyline. If you would like your background darker and deeper colors, slightly underexpose the skyline. Do a test shot, you should have a beatiful skyline with a silhouetted model.
For lighting the model, I used a Nissin Di700A speedlight to the left of the camera with Rogue XL Flashbender set up as a striplight. The speedlight was fired using a Nissan Air One transmitter. My speedlight is set on manual. To read the speedlight, I used Sekonic 478 light meter. I shot this at ISO 200 1/80th f5
