I celebrate my birthday today with two great professional notes. First of all, I’m the featured photographer this month in the Photoflex Pro Showcase. As someone who’s been using (and sometimes abusing) Photoflex gear for 20 years, I’m honored to be recognized in the same category with so many other talented shooters.
Also, I’m excited to announce that my first lighting tutorial is now online over at the Photoflex LightingSchool. In this lesson, I break down a skate skiing photo shoot that we did last month in sub zero Alaska weather with the TritonFlash battery powered strobe.
See how I go cold and fast with light at sunset while shooting action. See how the TritonFlash performs in extreme winter conditions. See just how much we suffered and nearly froze solid in order to get the shot. The lesson includes nearly every single detail of the shoot, including location scouting, gear selection, setup, specific exposure information, light placement and overall approach for getting the final image.
