Mixing Flash With Candle Light | Take and Make Great Photography with Gavin Hoey

The warm flickering glow of candle light makes it an attractive subject for photographers but don’t be fooled by what you see with your eyes, cameras, and candles can be a fun challenge to master.

In this video, photographer Gavin Hoey sets out to shoot a festive feeling portrait with candles lighting both the background and the model. However as Gavin demonstrates, using a candle as the light source for a portrait has some major pitfalls. Hard shadows and light from below create a look that’s perhaps more appropriate for a Halloween shoot than a Christmas portrait.

Luckily Gavin walks you step by step through the best way to mix candle light and flash in a small home studio. His aim is to achieve a festive portrait that has a stunning candle background and soft light on the model in the style of candle light.
