OFF CAMERA FLASH

October 17, 2016

I've long been a fan of off camera flash. It adds depth and reality to photographs. And is vital to emulating natural light...a goal for many photographers.

While recently spelunking antique offerings around town I stumbled upon this art piece.

It put a smile on my face and my first thought was "now that's a great example of off camera flash."

The sculpture with the Kodak Brownie also reminded me of an experience many months ago when I helped and elderly couple pull an exposed roll of 620 B&W film from their Brownie Hawkeye. They're sending it off for processing and I hope to see the results. I believe they purchased it new back in the day as they Brought the box and booklet along for show and tell. As it was a somewhat random encounter I made two mistakes. The roll was only partially exposed and I should have used the rest of the roll to make photographs of them: And I neglected to get their contact info...arggh on both accounts. But those moments were great. They were charming, fun and ever grateful for the assistance and info on a lab that may still process the film.
