Off Camera Flash… | Studio Lighting Naturally | Baltimore Photographer

As you may have heard, the studio is closing up for a few weeks.  We will reopen July 21st.  We will be, as a family, down in Cape Hatteras, NC enjoying our yearly family vacation.   In the meantime, I thought I would share some styles that I usually don’t show on my portrait site that I threw together the other night.   These lighting set ups are in my lighting book.  I’ve never understood why some photographers do not want to be well-rounded in both natural and studio lighting… Not pickin’ on ya – I just don’t understand as I REALLY love having the ability to create all kinds of different styles.  🙂

In the photography world, for a while we would hear all this hype about Off Camera Flash.  OCF is nothing new, but received some serious hype recently. This has been a love of mine for quite some time – as for me, off camera flash is no different than the way I approach studio lighting indoors. However, I am usually photographing babies and young children, and I don’t need to do setups like this with them.

This is just used as fill light…

and here’s your typical off camera flash for drama… Isn’t this one-room schoolhouse amazing? Thanks to the owners of the farm where we board our horses for allowing me to photograph in this place…  These are my favorites…

as an aside – I am constantly being asked where my Studio Lighting Naturally book can be purchased.  It is available at http://www.jodieotte.com/books.htm It is a simple approach to studio lighting to not overwhelm the natural light photographer who wants to learn studio lighting.

PLEASE NOTE:   We have books in stock right now for immediate shipment.  Any books ordered by July 7th will be shipped out by July 8th.  Any books ordered after that time, will not ship until the end of July.
