Since I bought my first flash (Canon 430 Ex II) I can't get enough of it! The strobist technique has made its way into almost all of my different shooting styles. I mainly do portraiture now but when I was starting out with photography I did a lot of sports and landscape work. Now I still enjoy those styles I just have a little different approach now. I've boarded and skied at Mt Spokane Ski and Snowboard park for years now and I don't think I have seen another photographer taking the strobist approach to their photography, especially during the day. Since a single Canon 430/580 might not be powerful enough to shoot in the middle of the day and really make that rider "pop" out like I want them to I decided to bring up one of my studio strobes. I used an Alien Bee B800 (Paul C Buff) and their Vagabond mini to power it. Transporting all the gear around that day was not as bad as I thought it would be and after seeing the photos when I got home all the work was worth it! I only had a little bit of time to shoot in the park but you can expect to see many more images like this from me in the near future. Please leave a comment down below if you would like to see some behind the scenes pictures and a few more details on the setup on these shots and maybe a look into my post processing.
