more uses for my umbrella and flash

9 years 2 months ago #198306 by Pud
I seem to have come to a bit of a stop in my portraiture.. whenever I go out to shoot with my umbrella and flash, I always seem to put it at a standartd 45° angle and then shoot.
Don't get me wrong, the results are awesome and everyone's happy, but what if I wanted more? what can i do with my flash and umbrella and still get that glamour, sophisticated look?

:agree: The sky is the limit, be creative and have fun...,

You will not be judged as a photographer by the pictures you take, but by the pictures you show.

The answer is obvious, move that light around, get out of that habit of what you feel safe with. :thumbsup:
