The flickr group Shanghai Strobists as well as the Shanghai Photography Meet-up Group met last month to discuss off-camera flash photography. Phottix was there to lend a hand with the gear and models.
David and Lutz went through various camera lighting set-ups. From basic pop-up flash to off-camera use of umbrellas and softboxes. The changes are quite significant. The best advice any photographer can get regarding flash use: Get the flash off the camera.
After the presentation the 40+ photographers tried their hand at what they had learned with two local models. A great time, some great photos shots and tips and tricks learned.
See the gallery below for some event photos, as well as David’s set on flickr.
