Amazing strobist photos – rocking off camera lighting

For those of you who don’t know what “Strobist” refers to you have to check out, a great resource for lighting. Strobist basically refers to using small flashes off camera to create amazing images. Sometimes people think to get great lighting you need tons of gear and a huge, expensive setup but that’s really not true. Most of you that know me and the wedding work that I do know that I love off camera lighting for weddings and always try and bring compact gear that can be quickly and easily setup but still will give me great results. A simple vivitar 285 flash can create some pretty cool images when you know how to work it. It’s pretty amazing what you can create sometimes with just one very small flash. With just your small little flash you can make noon sun look like night, get the perfect fill for a sunset portrait, or get really creative night shots, the possibilities are endless.

Enjoy some fresh inspirational images here and watch out for some lighting tutorials and real life examples of off camera lighting coming on the site in the next few weeks. Do you have some great strobist shots? Share a link below in the comments or post them on our facebook wall.
