Natural Light & Strobes on Location by Jay P. Morgan ‘The Slanted Lens’

I very much enjoy Jay P. Morgan and his educational lighting videos. We all have seen his videos on how to balance strobes with daylight, how to combine artificial lights and evening sky, or tips on softboxes here and here. In this tutorial, Jay shares with us the process of combining natural light and strobes on location, as it’s difficult to shoot video and stills on the same set-up unless you plan for it. I’ve already downloaded the app he uses, Sun Seeker), so I can test it on my next location shoot. You could see exactly where the sun is going to go down.

It’s a shame he lost one assistant after this shoot. On the bright side, he didn’t fire anyone.
