off-camera bounce flash – my guest spot on Frank Doorhof’s blog
I was fortunate to make the acquaintance of a phenomenal Fashion photographer last year when Frank Doorhof visited New York. He was gracious enough to be featured on the Tangents blog with a guest spot - on learning the essentials of photography. And it is my turn to reciprocate. The topic of my post is off-camera bounce flash.
Showing a sequence of images that I shot of Ulorin Vex earlier this year, I explain the thought-process in the lighting that I used. The lighting technique itself was quite simple, but there were some steps in finessing the final result.
And it’s all there on Frank’s blog - off-camera bounce flash.
