I have a wedding coming up and the ceremony is in the middle of the day outdoors without any cover. The sun will be directly above us, and the time of year here is REALLY bright. So I am a bit stuck for options like backlighting them and so on.
I have set expectations REALLY low for the ceremony shots, I have told them it is the worst time of day, and they are cool with it. So I am off the hook there.
At the same time, I am wanting to do the best I can. I have been experimenting with fill flash that time of my day with my daughter in a white dress. About the best I can come up with up using on camera flash is dialling EC to about 1 stop under, TTL with HSS, and flash comp at 3/4 under. I preserve most of the dress and do a so so job of filling in the shadows. Equipment is a 5D4 and a 630ex flash with the usual lenses. I am wanting to avoid setting up light stands and so on. i am not sure if it would be much help anyway. I tend to shoot in AV for this sort of thing so I can be more nimble. I shoot manual for indoor shots with flash when shooting the family shots as I have them hostage at that point.
I am curious how you guys would tackle this. Am I looking at this the right way?
