Ed Pierce and Lori Nordstrom team up on the streets of Winterset, Iowa to demonstrate a wide variety of lighting and posing techniques available for most common urban environments. While the models in this video are young teens the techniques demonstrated are applicable to a wide variety of subjects. Techniques include looking for and finding natural light, supplementing existing light with reflectors, and adding supplemental flash to balance with the existing light and high-speed sync.
