Off-Camera Flash (OCF) with Amanda :: 270 Sherman :: Tutorial Photo Shoot

Hey!

I know you, right?  I think we hung out once…but it’s been a while.  Hope you haven’t forgotten about me!

For the month of March I was the Monthly Mentor on the Chic Critique Forum–and as such I needed to create and share a video about an area of my expertise.  Now, while I do not call myself an expert at off-camera flash (OCF), I am an expert at PARTS of it.   So the tutorial was about the basics of this really fun and challenging skill.

Amanda was my model for the shoot–and was also being filmed at the same time for the video footage–thanks to Mark Van Noord of Airborne Video Productions.I can’t show you the footage–because you need to be a member of the forum to see it :)   There are perks to being a member!

*All of the shots that are side-by-side (the diptychs), are SOOC, or straight out of camera–except for straightening.  I’m a crooked shooter!*   If you want to know specifics about the images–ask me in the comments.  Most of the images were shot using different OCF techniques and equipment.

Anyway–I think I only released ONE sneak peek from this session–so here are my favourites! Enjoy!

    • Thanks Cassie! The set up was just one speedlight with a variety of accessories–like reflectors, soft-boxes and snoots designed for speedlights. Also, I shot some of the images using my on-board flash to fire the OCF, and some of the images were using the Pocket Wizard TT5 flex system + various reflective and shoot through umbrellas.
      It’s an awesome skill to have–just experiment and start small!
