Resistance to Change (Model and Senior Photography in Salt Lake)

I took a fabulous class today from Ali of Rock That OCF. It was extremely painful... in a good way. I don't mean the class was painful (it was actually fantastic - well taught, lots of hands-on experience, fun people.) I mean the whole concept of off camera flash was difficult for me. I have used flash on location before, but this was totally different, with all sorts of weird aperture and shutter settings, and new equipment to learn. I struggled between learning something new, and doing things the same way I usually do them. Me and my clunky tripod, on shutter speed 1/10th of a second... it was actually pretty funny. Anyway, the verdict is in, however, and I definitely think this is a technique I can adapt into my routine when occasion demands. Just ignore the posing issues in some of these - I didn't take the time I'm used to taking to make everything perfect, and we were all sharing models, so I didn't want to be too overbearing. I mostly tried to shoot from the back of the pack when I could steal a pop of the Pocket Wizard. Thanks everyone who was in the class for a great day. I really wish I could have gone to lunch with everyone.
