Nick’s simple guide to lighting tests in a high wind. Lesson one:
I think the main lesson is that my garden is way too windy for a Rotalux 100 Deep Octa softbox.
I don’t think stage weights and sandbags would have helped much in this case, but I’m going to take it all (camera, Ranger Quadra, Rotalux 100DO softbox, weights and sandbags, bike and myself) into the woods to do a proper test. I’m banking on it being a lot less windy there!
I’ll let you know how I get on.
