The Strobist.

I’d be lying if I said that the photographic understandings I’d garnered in my first 10 years of shooting included how to deal with off-camera flash. The truth is, all I ever really knew was that I could use the onboard flash on most cameras or get something bigger to stick on top. The idea of moving the flash away from the camera entirely and sculpting the light was foreign.

Then I found this guy. To be sure, I’m not the only person who’s delighted in his “anyone can do this” approach. The flickr group he started has almost sixty thousand members who come from all over the globe.

Anyway, I was doing some edits to a shoot from last week and surfing Mr. Hobby’s blog at the same time and found that in this post, he’d shot some small stuff with a camera I know a little about and a flash and a piece of folded up paper. I’d meant to go on to bed, but I ran downstairs to try the shot out really fast — just to see if it was as easy as he made it out to be in the post. I was pretty impressed.

You can judge for yourself, but I thought that since I didn’t have anything translucent around, these tablets would suffice.
