Ambient Light refers to light that is present all around us. Ambient light can come from the sun, overhead lights, lamps etc and can be re-directed using reflectors.
Image 1 below - Sun camera right, gold reflector camera left F5 1/60 ISO 500. Reflector casted a warm glow on the model.
Image 2 below - Same camera settings but with a white reflector.
Image 3 below - F4 S/S 400 ISO 500
Image 4 below - F11 S/S 1/6 ISO 160. My manual camera settings were all wrong and unfortunately the low S/S caused the image to be very blurry. This could of been a great candid shot. The background foliage is bright and vibrant and its a nice side angle and smile but the S/S is far to low for me to hand-hold.
Image 5 below - Camera settings changed to S/S 1/80 ISO 500 but now the smile has gone!
Image 6 - F4.8 S/S 125 ISO 160 - Really like the sky especially as it darkens as it goes up in the image. I also like the curve of the path with the straight lines of the gate.
Image 7 below - F5.3 S/S 1/100 ISO 160.
Image 8 below - F5.6 S/S 1250 ISO 500
Image 9 below - F5.3 1/40 ISO 500. There was a florescent tube light above models head which casted an orange glow. I picked this picture because there is great reflection of the window light in the glass wall.
Image 10 and 11 below - F5.6 1/125 ISO 200 model has back light from the sun.
