Day 216 – August 3, 2012

Self-portrait with flash.

I’ve been messing around with my external flash lately.  I’m not a very big flash user.  So far I’ve only used it at weddings.  But I know I need to get better at using it.  Who’s got flash tips for me?

  1. Flash tip#1
    wear runnning shoes..you will have to get out fast.
    #2.
    Tatoos ..cover them. They could be used to identify you.
    #3.
    don’t use your best rain coat…….

    Oh wait. Not that kind of flashing

    never mind

  2. I like what Chris said; so funny. I like your self-portrait, too. If your external flash is a bounce, there are lots of ways to use it. I wouldn’t know where to start except just practice, practice, practice.

  3. Chris beat me to it, love the self portrait but why block out your face with a flash? Yet show blue finger nails, no engagement or wedding ring, blonde hair, gonna find you a husband…

    • I’ve always hated self-portraits, I always look awkward. I always joke and say that’s why I’m a photographer, because I only like being behind the camera. So I’ve been trying to master the faceless self-portrait. And no need to find me a husband, since I’ve had one for 5 years. You can see my wedding and engagement rings, they are on the hand under the lens.

  4. Flash tips – get it off the camera if at all possible. Otherwise bounce it of ceilings or walls. Get a diffuser. :)

  5. I don’t have an external flash myself, so no tips from me, but the shot is cool. :-)

  6. Cool photo ooh and nice nail varnish :-)
