Studio Light vs Ambient Light a Challenge

Category: Photography

A couple of weeks ago I shared my thoughts on studio light. I concluded that studio light is not better or worse than available light just different. I could have left it at that, keep on working with available light and forget about whatever other light is there but I like a challenge. Because there are a lot of situation imaginable that does not have enough light to stil make a acceptable image let along a great image.

So here is my challenge: Use studio light with the ambient light but make certain you can not see that studio light is used.

And that is what I did. I used one softbox (60x90) and a 300W strobe. My aperture was set to F2.8 and my shutter speed set to 1/125 sec. All in manual mode off course. Fortunately my sweet Ronald was willing to be my usual suspect and appeared as my model (always a good reason to get him in front of the camera). So what is your opinion? Did I succeed my challenge? Leave your thoughts.
