My daughter helped me today on a photo shoot. Here she stood in for a test shot where I needed a key/main light due to the overhead skylight creating unpleasant light on her face.
Once I had my setup I just dialed the Pocketwizard AC-3 power up and down to balance the light in the room. I chose to make it about a stop brighter to be sure it was the main light on her face.
Next I just moved closer and tried a few angles with the Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4.
After exploring my options for later, I then took my second Nikon D5 and put the Nikon 85mm ƒ/1.8G lens on it and did a few more shots for angles. Now the reason it is on a second body is it would be much faster to change cameras than lenses.
Again I then tried a few different angles and compositions.
