I shoot a large number of weddings and as we know we don't always have a lot of control over the location of the ceremony.
Recently I shot a wedding right on a river bank with a party of 8 up front. The sun was right behind the bridal party face straight towards the camera and also reflecting strongly right across the water towards us.
So probably the worst lighting you can imagine as they were also standing in the shade..
I used a lot of on camera flash and +1 exposure compensation to help balance the light. It worked ok but have been wondering, what if:
I have an Elinchrom Ranger with two heads, wondering if it would have been better to overpower the sun with these lights rather than the speedlight.
They are small enough to almost hide on small tripods to the side of the wedding party.
Thoughts? Any experience using this sort of lighting outdoors.
