|Creating contrast with colour temperature|
Whilst there is the obvious contrast that can be created by using a harder light source, we can also create contrast of a different kind by playing around with colour temperature. This gives a different feel to the photo and it's just one way of affecting the mood of an image.

|Interfit Stellar Extreme flash head used bare bulb.|
In this post we will look at the results from using the Interfit Stellar Extreme flash head (with no light modifiers) to see what it can achieve. I bought this light several years ago and at the time it represented quite an investment for me (I think it was about the £300 mark back then) - not an inconsiderable amount but I wanted something with more power than a speedlight and capable of taking more light modifiers.
