CHUCK ARLUND BLOG » living one weekend closer to death

Creative Live

I have heard so much about this Creative Live. It is the talk of the nation when it comes to photographers. I am honored and excited to have been asked to be a part of CL this Sunday. All info click here: http://www.creativelive.com/courses/hack-your-light-chuck-arlund?cla=enroll

I’ll be covering some basics to start with but not much. It is assumed that you will already know a lot of this stuff like, Inverse square law, light patterns and how flash exposure works.

Mostly I will be shooting and doing stuff I normally do with not much equipment. That is why the class is called Hack Your Light. I’m looking forward to reverse engineering some of my images that the folks over at CL picked out. That is a great way to learn. I want you to see that interesting lighting does not have to be complicated and that a lot of time, photographers try and overcomplicate things just because they feel like they have to I guess.

I hope you turn in this sunday.

Explanation for the picture being lit completely when using shutter speed much faster than sync speed:
the strobe you use illuminates for 250 ms (or close); this is how the strobe works – it starts with high power and then discharges slowly; so when the shutter curtains move there is still light coming from the strobe (but less compared to the initial light – you can see the picture is not uniformly lit).
The speedlight works differently: it discharges practically instantaneously compared with the strobe (1/10000s range)
If you use a higher quality strobe (with smaller discharge time) then your trick will not work anymore.
