Larry Siedentop

Here is one of my recent portraits of the Writer Larry Siedentop .

To retain the atmosphere of the room and the view out of the window I metered for the ambient light which balanced fairly well for the light outside the window around 1/60th sec  f/8 at 800 asa . This gives the warm glow of the table lamp .

Then using an Elinchrom Ranger Quadra with 2 heads each with an umbrella I was able to get the light into Larry Siedentop’s face .

The key is to set the flash light to balance with the ambient light at f/8
