|Left: Caroline by Les Harvey using an SB910 speedlight and honeycomb grid to limit the spread of light. At right: Emma, again by Les Harvey using a far softer, modified speedlight source to present this sensitive portrait.|
|Water being sloshed into a glass - this was an exceptional result from Tanya Kastoumis. Without an audio trigger this technique is easy to set up but a matter of persistence and repetition to get the 'moment'.|
|Portrait of Kristina using an Orbis ring flash adaptor, shot by Beate WildnerThe advantage of this process is that the 360 degree illumination around the lens produces a soft, indistinct shadow around the subject.|
|Obviously Beate like the Orbis ring flash adaptor - here's another striking portrait of Emma, one of the students taking part in this class.|
|Another great result from Tanya Kastoumis|
Because of the backlighting, it's necessary to punch as much reflected light back into the front of the model to lighten the face...
|Two more cracking flash portraits taken in the Uni grounds. |
Caroline by Beate Wildner at left and Emma Foster by Les Harvey at right.
|A great example of how a simple and inexpensive honeycomb grid can stylise a portrait|
This looks like a still from a film. Kristina, shot by Emma Foster.
|In this nice multicoloured portrait Emma Foster used red gels over the back speedlight left-hand side, and nothing on the front flash which adds a little more natural light to thew face.|
|Camper product shot from Emma Foster|
Using nothing more than a Caonon speedlight and a honeycomb grid to achieve this impressive-looking studio shot.
|Fun product shot from Beate - a couple of remedial balms and their packaging|
Shot using a speedlight fired through a translucent scrim to soften the shadows and provide ore of an even illumination.
|Amazing what you can create in nothing more than a regular office location, several speedlights and a lot of assistants...|
