As the old adage goes, "April showers bring May flowers." For April's #MadeWithMagMod photo contest, we wanted to see how the #MagModCommunity rocked images that focused on blooms. Here's a roundup of the winners. Congrats, guys!
Grand Prize Winner
Here's how Theilen got the shot:
"This image was made in Lake Tahoe, California. I took the couple out for sunset to make a few photos in the field of lupine flowers. It rained all through their ceremony and part of their reception, so I knew there was going to be an awesome sunset because generally thunderstorms in the mountains pass right on through and create a beautiful backdrop as the sun goes down. We got out to the field of flowers and made a bunch of different photos and as we were shooting a rainbow started to form. I was freaking out and grabbed a flash, MagGrid and CTO gel and only had a few minutes to work with to make this image. I set the flash on a light stand and shot down on the couple . . . a three minute shot thanks to MagMod!
2nd Place Winner
Diamond Street Photography
Diamond Street Photography explains how they got the shot:
"I used a MagGrid on the sweetheart table behind the couple because I had an idea where they would stop. I used a MagBounce for the front, and I used my 16-35mm at 19mm, got close locked and hit it! I usually start my flashes at the reception at 1/32. That's probably where they were. Other stats: ISO 2500 F4.0 1/125. Canon 5D3."
3rd Place Winner
Here’s how Creative Foromissies got the shot:
"Two flashes behind the tulip leaf and one flash with MagGrid on front to light the stone of the ring."
