I live near one of the two water towers in Maple Grove, MN, and it is a frequent photography subject of mine. Click here to read about both of the water towers.
Today I ventured out in the unseasonably warm Minnesota weather and approached photographing the water tower in a different manner. I used flash for the first time. Specifically, three flashes located off camera to the right. Look below the photo for more details.
I used three flashes located off camera to the right. Two flashes were directly on the water tower operating at 100%, and one flash was lighting the grass at 25% power. A fourth on camera flash was used as a commander to trigger the other three flashes. This was mostly an experiment to see if I could light the whole thing. Taken at F/2.8, ISO 640, 1/2 second hand held. I used a longer exposure, so that a bit of color from the parking lot lights would creep in and make it not so stale looking and so that the clouds came out a bit.
