I enjoyed the relaxing by the pool while spending time down in Arizona this February. Even though the pool was not heated, and rather frigid, we still found ways to enjoy it, and once in a while did take a quick dip!
I played around a little with my camera in one hand, and my flash in the other, shooting the kids doing their thing. I had a lot of fun and really like the effect high speed sync gives when shooting in the mid-day sunshine. I did however find out that one flash head does NOT reach far when it's this bright out!
I've done quite a bit with off-camera flash photography outside, but I want to do more. I'd like to have a flash off-camera be one of my main pieces of equipment, as it gives an added depth to the image, and offers so much more workability!
There are some photographs in this post that are taken with no flash, but most with flash. Can you tell which ones are which?
This more journalistic approach gives a much more candid look, and doesn't necessarily make a beautiful portrait, but more so tells a story.
I'd love to hear what you think!
