Many photo friends be dazzling night portrait of spot and gorgeous colour is attracted, but do not always shoot out the desired visual effect, here I and my "hummingbird external flash concentration camp" guy with portal share night portrait shooting process and skills.
Let me introduce my little partner and me first.

Night portrait shot, the first is the need for excellent photographic equipment, ISO high sense of strong body, a large aperture lens, performance beyond, easy to control lamp for outdoor or flash.
Of course, ordinary camera can shoot the header and night portrait, but a little trouble, the effect will be not ideal
This time we carry the 5d3 Canon camera, lens selection, the Canon Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM and Canon EF 200mm f/2.0L is II USM lens and high energy K4T Waipai light.
These two lenses commonly known as "big eyes", due to the large aperture, more easily create a fantastic scene background effect.
High power K4T lamp for outdoor with TTL function, is in my heart the lamp of god. Collocation high-energy ABC flash lamp device group, control is simple and convenient, can be arbitrarily in flash device according to random transform set light ratio, and high-energy ABC flash device and the camera body to a perfect match, I feel lighting installed in the fuselage, more intuitive and convenient.
Cononmk LED K4T modeling is also quite good, not only allows the photographer to see the direction of the light, and can help the camera lens in the dark, which is very good.
Shooting scene selection;
Night portrait photography, like gorgeous background light, you need to choose "traffic lights" on a busy street. Light source and neon color was shooting out from the basic conditions of dazzling spot, the night portrait, my buddies and I chose relatively prosperous street Shenzhen International Plaza.
The camera and flash settings:
1; the camera selects M file shooting mode, the point of light and local metering can be.
Night portrait shooting. In order to make models and beautiful urban landscape perfect fusion, should with a large aperture, telephoto, weak fill the idea to shoot.
In order to avoid the flash light model is "bright", "dark background" effect. So should be on the background of the light, so that the background exposure accurate. This time exposure of the background is accurate, can take the dazzling city night atmosphere, but model is "dark", it would need to fill the model.
In order to let the night of accurate exposure, the need to reduce the shutter speed, the shutter speed low, model is easy to shake, this time fill flash, you need to set the rear curtain sync flash mode.
If there is no large aperture lens small partners, this time you need to use a tripod.
In the process of shooting, remember to produce a large spot of the three to the number: the distance, focal length, aperture.
In order to create the atmosphere of the spot color, the background light and the color, it can achieve the unexpected visual effect.
I prefer the blue background. It is with blue color.
Some photographers like this "Eat light" effect.
Using flash light with the environment, to create a beautiful night, is so simple, the early summer season, the night view of Shenzhen is really beautiful. Let's go out and play.
