So, this whole TLC Tuesday thing started as a way for me to show readers the special attention I give to images in post-processing. But today I decided to do something different. You see, giving an image TLC at the moment of capture is just as important as it is in post-processing. Today’s example is about how I light my wedding formals in a dark church after the ceremony. Many photographers use only the flash on their camera, which works just fine. Through my own comparisons I find that I prefer to supplement my on-camera flash with an off-camera flash (or OCF as I will hereafter call it). The OCF is triggered by a remote attached to my camera; it sits atop a light stand and shoots into a translucent umbrella, which diffuses the light for a more flattering look. Does it really make that much of a difference? See for yourself:
