Portraits with Simone at Sunset Cliffs.  Overcast sky at sunset.  Murphy’s Law for Photographers #15, the previous two sunsets before the shoot were spectacular, and of course the sunset for the day of the shoot was average.  I was hoping to have a clean orange sky as the background, but ended up with a dark, overcast sky.  I used two battery-powered flashes as the main light.  With a steep drop into the ocean only a few feet behind us, I didn’t find a good place to put a side/rim light.  For the picture above, I used a warming gel on the main light, and dialed down the white balance to around 3000K.
