Budget Single Light Portrait Tutorial

Featured Monday, 14 November 2016 21:05

Join Kay and I for a quick outdoor photoshoot using a 15 year old DSLR and cheap manual flashes to create this dramatic off camera flash portrait shoot.

Check out http://mattgranger.com/budgetography for more of this series and see https://youtu.be/DfTt_w6XifI for our first shoot at this location.

I bought my D1x on ebay for $150 with lenses and cards, and bought the Voking VK750 flashes new from Protog in Australia: http://bit.ly/voking750

    Matt,
    I used to trigger my flash lights with the build in flash of the camera and than I could chose to use that one just for commander light. I just tested this with a SB-900 in commander mode. Dail the top line M to --- and point the flash straight to where you want. You can see the commander flash in the mirror, but that is all the commander flash will produce. I'm glad I have wireless triggers now, but also glad I can share some budget experience.

    Dear Matt,
    I have just come across a youtube channel that seems to have your videos on. As I have not seen the full versions of these that you post yourself, I am presuming that these are the videos you are selling, hence, this is why I am informing you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebqXnjRZu_0

    Kind regards,
    John
