One Flash…

My lighting setup currently consists of one manual flash gun and a radio trigger. Nothing else, not even an umbrella. I don’t even have a brolly for when it’s raining.

Anyway, this is a good thing. It means I can practice and get used to just this one thing without worrying about modifiers and multiple strobes and backgrounds.

Here are my first attempts. I’ve set the camera so that without the flash the exposure is almost black, then I’ve dialled in some very direct (I used a roll of black card as a snoot) low powered light.

Next up I’ll try bouncing that single flash off the ceiling. But for now… that’s it!
