In the continuous journey of learning, every now and then we find something that peaks our interest. In the vast arena of photography, one of those topics would be off camera flash. To a hobbyist or even a novice photographer off camera flash can be very intimidating. Although there is plenty of information to be found on this topic in publications, videos and of course the internet. My preference at the time is a site called strobist - learn to light 101 (http://strobist.blogspot.com/).
It starts you at the very basics of lighting (Flash) and guides you through some basic lighting setups. The author (David Hobby) explains concepts and methods that are easy to relate to without getting overly complicated. Images are provided with explanations on how the image was captured by using off camera flash, which give you great insight and builds your confidence. I highly recommend this site if your ready to take the next step towards conquering off camera flash. To make it a little easier I have attached a link to strobist lighting 101 to go, which can be downloaded to your computer in PDF format. http://strobist.blogspot.com/2014/01/lighting-101-to-go.html Learn and Enjoy!
