I’m Psyched

Tuesday morning, I will be getting up early and driving two hours to Indianapolis to attend “The Flash Bus 2011 Tour.” The Tour which is winding down is a one day workshop on using off camera small flash, given by two of the very best in the business, Joe McNally and David Hobby. I am familiar with both of their teachings. Joe by way of a week long photography workshop fin Sante Fe, sponsored by National Geographic. I also own two books and a Nikon DVD by him, and am a reader of his humorous and instructive blog. David was the first to uncomplicate small flashes for me by way of his “Strobist” blog. If you are interested, the original series of lessons are still available, just check out the side bar on his blog. He has also put out a multi DVD package, which I also posses, that covers one of his full day workshops. I have used small flashes for a variety of shots, but mostly for family portraits. My main subject, because he is with me 3 to 4 days a week is my Grandson Armand. I actually started photgraphing him before he was born, as you can see.

David and Joe have used small flashes to light stealth fighters, super colliders, and Ballerinas. For a single image they have used one flash to more flashes than the typical camera store has in stock. But if I ever meet either in person again, I’ll want to know if they ever used a beer sign to light their subject?
