Weekly Photo Contest (Aug 8th - 15th): Single Strobe Rules: 1. You may only submit one photo per contest. 2. The contest runs for exactly one week, from the first time stamp of the first post in the thread (this will be made by the winner of the previous week's contest). 3. Please refrain from commenting on the photos submitted in the contest. A good photograph is one that can appeal to someone who may not know much about the technical aspects of photography, so it would be best if the judge isn't swayed by someone else's opinion of the photograph. 4. The judge will choose his/her favorite at the end of the week, place a post listing it, and include a short synopsis of why he/she chose that photo. The winner is then responsible for choosing a new topic and starting a new contest thread, which will again run for exactly one week. This week's theme: Single Strobe This theme is admittedly a bit selfish as I'm just learning to use a strobe (flash) and I'm really keen to see what everyone here has been able to accomplish with a single strobe, either as the sole light source or to augment the natural/ambient light. On camera or off, with a modifier or not, doesn't matter. While it's not necessary to reveal your secrets, any insights you are willing to reveal about your lighting technique would likely of interest to many, especially me. Good luck!
