New Photoflex Lighting School Lesson – Shooting Cyclocross

By Dan

February 27, 2013

My latest lighting lesson is up on the Photoflex Lighting School Website. This one is called Photographing Cyclocross with the TritonFlash.

The lesson details how I used a single off-camera light to add life and excitement to the subjects while shooting cyclocross racing here in Alaska last fall. I demonstrate my method for shooting with the light in a variety of different vantage points during two separate races.

It also highlights the versatility and portability of the TritonFlash batter powered strobe for photographing action and fast moving subjects. I’ve been using the TritonFlash for over a year now and have found it to be an excellent, and surprisingly packable unit for outdoor photography. You can read my full review of the TritonFlash here.

This is my third lesson for the Photoflex Lighting School. You can find links to my other lessons on my Photoflex home page. I’m excited to be a part of the Photoflex testing and teaching team- look for more lessons from me in the coming months!

I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

You have done it again! Another triumph.

Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

Thank you, Dan.
