So, last Tuesday we had a photoshoot at French Valley Airport with 4 models and we had some good times. We knew it was gonna be a HUGE challenge as we were gonna start shooting at about noon on a bright sunny day. Over powering the sun was gonna be a bit tricky but it can be done. We were also having some trouble as there so much cloud cover that at times it was perfect, like a huge softbox, but then the clouds would move and the sun came blasting through. Now it can be difficult to over power the sun, light a model, and a plane using small speedlights. We love using speedlights for jobs that don't require us to meet all the aforementioned challenges, however we needed bigger lights for this particular job.
