To best light a foreground portrait subject against a setting (but still very bright) sun, Hawaiian photographer Eric Rolph put a Canon Speedlite 580EX II inside a 36-inch Photek Softlighter II umbrella-style softbox (A), and warmed up its output with a 1/4 Rosco CTO warming gel. His assistant suspended the Softlighter above the subject using a Manfrotto 680 monopod (B) as a boom. With everything ready, he posed the child to block the setting sun and photographed the scene with a Canon EOS 5D (C) and 17–40mm f/4L EF Canon zoom at its 35mm setting. He fired the flash with PocketWizard Plus II transceivers, for an overall exposure of 1/180 sec at f/13, ISO 100. In Adobe Photoshop CS5, he later whitened the sunlight to heighten contrast.
