.....Mixing lights is a crafty device. Again, working within the chosen exposure range of four F-stops, you can choose where to place which ever
light you want to. At the wedding, I blended the ceiling lighting with my flash as well as factor in the use of wall mirrors which acts as a reflector.
The faster moving parts, such as the hands and feet (that are lighted with continuous light) show movement, while the face that was lighted with
flash does not. Sully also sat on a table and I chose a large umbrella for her face and a tungsten lamp for under the table sweep, then hand held the
camera to enhance the movement of her feet and hip areas without her face being moved. The (mouse roll over) secondary images show a theatre
lighted with tungsten in the background and the subject lighted with flash. With the second shot of the hands, I allowed the tungsten to over
power the flash to give it more presence and sense of 3D form.
