    Monolight for outdoors

    Ok all you portrait/ monolight people. I was at my sons t- ball game and the photographers were taking all the players pictures.
    The day was overcast and during late morning. To me perfect for portrait shoots. The photographers were using an Elinchrom D-4 monolight shooting through a umbrela diffuser and it was next to the camera about 15-20' from the individual they were shooting. Im not by any means a pro, but to me the overcast day was perfect for lighting.
    And if you going to use a second light source, I would have put the monolight off to the side to create a bit of shadow for detail. Am I wrong or do I still not understand lighting?

    I think you're right. Sounds like the guys taking the pictures at the ball game were the ones who didn't know what they were doing.
