As photographers, we’re constantly fighting against (or with) varying light sources. The sun, the moon, street lighting and fluorescent car park lights. We must learn how to work best with them and against them when the time comes. Of course you always have the option of taking matters into your own hands…
Off-camera lighting has never been cheaper and information about varying techniques is easily accessed and widespread. You don’t even need anything more than a camera and any sort of light-emitting device.
Whether you’re working with multiple studio flash heads or the light on the back of your phone, your only limitation is your imagination.
If you want to take part in this theme, you’ll need to do the following:
- E-mail your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the exact subject line of ‘The Flash Theme’.
- Tell us your name, location and a little bit about the photograph.
- Attach the image directly to the email but ensure the image is no larger than 2000px on the longest side and a minimum of 1920PX.
- Make sure the image is free of any distracting watermarks. Don’t worry, we will make sure you are properly credited.
- Closing date for submissions is December 13th 2013.
Please note that all submissions are now in high resolution.
