This is a good one!
It is a nice article, but his excuse for using only one SB-800 is pretty lame. I have never been in a civilized area where I could not pick up a 4 pack of AA cells.
Agreed, but more than the results, I look at his approach for attacking a shot. For example, he makes balancing a flash and a sunset as easy as 1-2-3.
Start on a high shutter (1/250th) to kill the ambient.
Firing the flash, chimp the various aperture settings until the (subject) looks good.
Open up the shutter until the ambient (post-sunset sky and reflection) looks good.
Oh, yeah. Even I can do that.
I'll bookmark this one Frank, thank you.
Still trying to get my head round the 1,2,3 but I'm sure I'll get it shortly.
When I looked... I couldn't believe how good the results were with one speedlight. He's amazing.
Here is a whole bunch more stuff on using just one light.
Very interesting...thanks for sharing.
