Program Description:  What the Flash: Share the Light with Bob Davis

How many times have you been tasked with creating a photograph in the worst possible light or location? I don't always have the opportunity of shooting at the golden hour. You can't publish an excuse. I want to share with you how I use Off Camera Flash to control and shape the light into submission. It doesn’t matter what time of day, indoors or out; through mastering the control and shape of your light, no time is a bad time for a great picture. We will use all the light available and then mix in OCF to create the light we want no matter where or when. So don't be afraid to shoot at high noon, inside that cave of a venue or the dark streets at night, your living room, get that flash off camera and create stunning images.
