This weekend I have a maternity shoot with wife's co-worker.... she will be delivering in beginning of June. This is a TFP session as I haven't done much these past couple of months, which she knows she will be my practice shoot but still want her to have good photographs.
Now I have been hurting myself as I haven't done much practicing. Lately I have seen many videos on hss (outdoors) which I don't have capabilities yet and not buying lighting for it anytime soon. Last week on a facebook photography group, someone mentioned getting hss from an ND filter. Is this possible? If so, what would help as I plan on using the 85mm lens? A friend might be able to let me borrow a Canon 70-200mm F4. Now I am not expecting to get expectacular photos but looking to get great photos to be able to showcase eventually for my portfolio.
If I understand correct... for hss one has to expose background first, then when satisfied then light is added. With hss, I have see shutter speed above what my camera allows which is 250. Perhaps just from seeing all those videos, I "bought into" the hole hss function and I am just not ready that. Also, for indoor shoots, hss is not needed? Indoor is set up differently?
Thanks in advanced.
