In Response to RE: A Sample Portrait by Amy
It has often been said, and I agree, that the number-one trick to good flash photography is; Get the Light Off the Camera.
I used to think that “studio work” would require umpteen-thousands of dollars of gear and be horribly complicated, but actually you can go a long way with only a few hundred bucks. There is a GREAT web site devoted to (off-camera) flash photography called www.strobist.com written by working professional photojournalists. They have some tutorials called “Lighting-101” and “Lighting-102” that are a great introduction to technique and make some good suggestions on basic equipment too.
