Creating Dynamic Portraits with Speedlites, with Sal Cincotta


Infusing his chat with practical business and photo skills, St. Louis-area photographer Sal Cincotta talks about lighting, lighting, lighting. He discusses it in terms of branding your business, how to keep your kit portable, highlighting facial types and, really, from every angle imaginable. He details his versatile use of speedlites, the hard-edge style he prefers and the specific tools and modifiers he adds to get each job done. The beauty of Cincotta’s talk is not just his dynamic style, but the no-nonsense advice he offers to wedding and portrait shooters on how to “build” a scene by using flash photography.
