This is just one photo taken a few days ago using off camera flash. Using an SB 800 on a stand fired remotely. This was a trial session for me using this method. Let me know of any tips you have for using off camera flash.

A good off camera flash shot. You have managed to light the model well using the technique. If you haven't already looked at the stobist site it is worth a look for this kind of method.

Hi Jonboy,
The way you used your flash is excellent. Only point of critique (3 small points actually) the iron pole, the iron railing (coming out of her head) and the pole with the wires are distracting. Her right hand is not fully lit, i would have placed it out of sight.

I really like this shot a lot, I'm trying off camera techniques myself at the moment with varying success. I agree with the comments above about the pole and powerlines, but still think this is a very good image, I've uploaded a mod, hop you don't mind.

I wasn't sure whether to crop out the power line and/or the building struts so thanks for the mods everyone. And I think looking at it now I would take out both elements. Thanks again everyone.
