Off-Camera Flash

A recent assignment was to look through techniques found on a couple of specific websites and attempt to recreate one of them. We were told that the one we chose had to incorporate the use of off-camera flash. I chose a shooting style called “Flash and Blur,” found at this website. The technique involves having the subject lit only by a strobe, and the background lit only by ambient light. Using a slow shutter speed, the background can be motion blurred. The subject, however, stays sharp due to the quick pop of the flash.
