Own Preset

It’s not too often that I see an OCF shot in the height of summer that’s not been taken on a dance floor. It’s a technique that’s often used in the darker months to magic up something creative when the light isn’t so abundant. Plus at this time of year, you have to wait until it’s pretty late so that it will be dark enough to produce anything. So maybe that’s why this clever OCF shot from the lovely Daniel Ackerley stood out to me this week. I like how it’s taking a rural setting of a farm from twee to edgy. I like the symmetry and I think this has been expertly executed. It’s a totally controlled and contrived image and yet the couple still look lost in a moment. Very nice work Daniel …

What Daniel says ...

” OCF Settings: Nikon SB910 @ 1/4 power shot through a MagMod MagBox 24 Octa held by my assistant camera right.

Cydney & Matt got married on an old farm, and these grain silos were just outside the main barn they were using next to the car park, and I thought they would make for an interesting back drop to a very moody and dark early evening sky. All of the light in the image was provided by a single MagMod MagBox, camera right, using a Nikon SB910 on 1/4th power. and this not only lit the couple perfectly, but bounced light around the scene, providing some lovely soft front lighting on the silos. I simply edited out my assistant in PS to leave me with this final image.”
