HI and welcome back.

In Philly on Saturday, running a location workshop for Expoimaging, we did four lighting looks using the Rogue Flashbender system.

The weather was gorgeous and the attendees just a great and fun crowd.  We shot guerilla style.  I had an idea and concept for the first look but every other look thereafter was done on the fly.  But, for the third look, I gave my students an assignment: find us a spot to shoot and they chose the graphic brick wall of an old restaurant.

Look one was a single SB900 with Large Rogue Flashbender, no diffusion panel, bent forward to send the light straight to our subject:

For our second look, we headed over to the parking lot under the highway.  I wanted to use the graphic look of the highway above us but there were too many cars parked there, so I set the model in front of a fence that hid a few dumpsters.

 

We used three speedlights:

SB900, Large Flashbender with diffusion panel as main light

SB800, Large Flashbender, no diffusion panel, bent to direct hair and shoulder light

SB800, 45 degree Rogue Grid, CTB blue filter to cool the red down a bit

 

The spot the group chose was in the corner of a brick building that looked like it used to be a firehouse:

SB900, Large Flashbender with diffusion panel as main light

SB800, Large Flashbender, no diffusion panel, bent to direct hair and shoulder light

SB800, 45 degree Rogue Grid, Rogue Rust colored gel to offset the reds in the back

 

Here’s us working on the street corner:

 

Last but not least we did some bounce flash in the event space, showing the ability of on camera bounce to just as good a job as off camera flash or studio lighting:

 

Many thanks to Gregg at Calumet, Philly for hosting the workshop event and to my sponsor in all of this, Expoimaging.
