Photo Adventure - Flash Magic

A part of the class I took includes demonstrations and instruction on using off-camera flash. We have one of the best in the world as our instructor, Joe McNally. It is amazing to watch him work with a subject and push the light around to make an image.

Our final morning shoot was at Deadhorse Point. As you will be able to tell from the background behind the cedar it was a gray day. But with a couple of small flashes this colorful image is created. All of us with Nikon camera bodies were able to use our cameras in commander mode to trigger the flashes that Joe had set up for us.

The "sunrise" on the tree is from the flash. CTO gels to provide the warmth in the light. Two SB900 units, one to the right as the primary and one to the left as the secondary. Nikon D90 with the pop-up flash as the commander.
