About this event:
In this session, international photo educator and lighting wizard Dave Montizambert reveals how he problem solves and overcomes obstacles while creating incredible images on location. While he admits that using off-camera flash has the advantage of portability and compact size, for serious location lighting, Dave claims it falls short when compared to the simplicity and power of mono-block strobes plus, more importantly, strobes have a greater selection of better designed lighting modifiers and that for the same money, one gets more power and control with mono-block strobes.
