Guerilla Shooting on the High Line with Off-Camera Flash


Off-camera flash is usually associated with studio environments. However, in this twenty-five minute presentation, professional photographer Robert Harrington addresses a group that is about to go to a nearby location for some “guerilla-style" shooting. For Harrington, this style provides an opportunity to throw planning out the window and roll with whatever happens.

Engaging in guerilla-style shooting also means that lugging masses of lights isn’t optimal, and so the emphasis here is on a single-light system and how to get as much mileage out of it as possible. Although this is a prep talk for the group, there is enough information here to allow one to go out on one’s own and realize some interesting images, be it of models, products or interesting outdoor situations.
