Jindabyne (Day 3) part B
After a full day on the mountain, I grabbed the Gary Fong Lightsphere to try it out against the setting sun on the drive down the mountain. As I suspected, it does hold it's own in providing a softer light and bigger lightsource than a normal flash. The wind was howling and the sun was goin down fast, but we pulled over on the side of the road and snapped a couple shots in a section with a thin snowcover. I used the lightsphere with the silver dome, and took all the shots in situation with backlighting, meaning that the subjects would have been silhouetted without the light from the Lightsphere.
