We have all the camera equipment already but most of them are not confident to try much off camera lighting during their wedding shoots.
So with the help of model Mimi we went out to try out some various techniques and how to deal with less than cooperative lighting conditions. For example shooting in the midday sun etc..
I like to show that you don't need all the best most expensive brands and equipment to get nice results when using off camera flash. Most of my gear I get from online stores in Hong Kong and China. 99% of the time it works just fine. Actually I have more problems with my brand name equipment malfuntioning.
One of the sites I use quite often to buy from is linkdelight.com
Everyone had fun and learnt a few new tricks to try at their next shoot. Here's some behind the scenes shots and students samples from the workshops.

This is all super cheap stuff bought from Hong Kong.
Lets get LOW!
