  • 1Description

In Minus 2/3 - The Invisible Flash from Rocky Nook, George Ludwig, a National Geographic veteran, takes us behind the scenes of many of his most iconic images to share his approach to lighting with a small flash. Known for his powerful photo essays and one of the leading documentary photographers of our time, Ludwig focuses on diverse cultural and environmental stories. He is often confronted with a wide range of low-light situations which require additional lighting that must be created quickly, effectively, and discreetly.

Going back more than 20 years, Ludwig began using small handheld flashes in his photography with the aim of creating an even and balanced look in the final image. These small flashes also diminished the burden of carrying heavy equipment, allowing him to be flexible and unobtrusive when moving around in the field. As he refined and honed this technique, he became so proficient at mastering small flashes that his use of a flash in the final image is often mistaken for natural light. In his recent fine art and documentary work featuring interiors and night settings, Ludwig has been creating long-exposure photographs by using a tripod while triggering multiple flashes with a single master-flash unit.

In the past, Ludwig has discussed his tricks of the trade only in lectures and workshops. Now he shares his knowledge and techniques in book form. Equal parts inspiration and education, this book is straightforward and succinct, yet filled with numerous takeaways from one of today's leading photographers. Packed with beautiful, effective, and moving images, Minus 2/3 offers ideas, insight, and inspiration for photographers looking to subtly incorporate flash into their work.

Please note: Some images featured in this book may be considered unsettling for some sensitive readers.
