Highlights blown out.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I've just been trying out my new L & M Bluefin Pro/Canon HF G10 at the swiming pool. When using my HID Sunray lights, I've noticed Whites, and skin tones look a little overexposed. Is there a cure for this without underexposing the rest of the scene? Thanks Alan.

The original Sunray HID lights had no power control so the light you get is the light you get. However, depending upon the length of your light arms, when I was using them I simply spread them out and back and positioned them so their edges barely touched for straight on shots. Sometimes I would place one light up high facing down with the other coming in from the side for a different type of lighting effect. The HIDs were good lights, I still have them sitting in a drawer here for the last few years, and I never had a problem with them. Yes, the cables were a touch of a pain, but that was my only complaint and I rarely blew out a shot with them when doing macro work. It was all a matter of positioning.

Steve
