I mostly shoot in natural light, don't use my yongnuo yn-468 too often. But now I would like to get more into shooting outdoors with a light setup. For instance, similar to these:
From what I can see in the videos, I'm pretty use he uses a hensel expert d 500 on a beauty dish, and a silver umbrella, but i'm not 100% sure. I can't afford that kind of lighting.
I have done a lot of research on this forum and throughout different sites and I just can't find the answer to what setup I need. Should I get shoot through umbrellas, reflective umbrellas, a brolly box umbrella, a beauty dish, or what combination?
I just have two flashes: yongnuo yn-468 and a second cheap slave flash.
What beginner setup can I get to shoot something somewhat similar to the above portfolio (of course I don't expect to shoot the same images, but hopefully something similar).
I've read several posts where there's really helpful photos that show lighting differences on mannequins, but I don't know how that translates to outdoor photos where I'd be competing with the sun behind the model? From me research, the white shoot through umbrella seems to be the softest and diffuses the light the most on subjects indoors, but is that what I need outside?
If I get a beauty dish and a silver reflective umbrella, while using the flashes I have that are nothing near to the hensel ones used in the above photos, is it still possible to achieve the same type of photos?
I was looking into these:
but don't know if they're appropriate for outdoor photoshoots? Or should I just use them in the evening when the sun is much more softer and I just need to light up the model a bit?
Sorry for so many questions, but it's literally what's going through my head. I feel like i've researched so much through google, and at the end i'm still stuck with the same question, since I read different answers and people having different preferences, how do I know which one's mine if I've never used one?
Thank you so much for reading all of this,
