I always get flash reflected off the wife on the face. How do many of you take portrait with sunset? Espcially on the cheak and forhead. This is one of the better picture but there are still lights reflected on the face. I use flash fill.

The only thing that totally sucks about this photo....

...I had to click a link to view it! :)

lol, I am just kidding, that is a good shot and you have a beautiful wife. I don't think there is much you can do about the reflections on the skin except powder her up before you take the pictures. I believe its the oils in the skin making the reflection. So maybe carry alcohol wipes and wipe her face down before you shoot??? My wife would kill me if I tried that though. :)

I think you've done a good job. Expose for the sky and then add fill flash... but it will only work so well... Conversely, expose for your wife, take a second shot and expose for the sky and then merge the two (as in HDR)...

Thanks. I've seen photos here that look fantastic and that's why I ask. I tried and tried but can't seem to get it right.

I'm usually not a fan of following a link away either, but this was worth it.


Congrats on a beautiful photo and a beautiful wife.


Name's Andy! :)

try shooting it with your flash off the camera, that would help reduce the direct reflection.
