Kids & Flash By Warren Street

Kids & Flash

By Warren Street

Love the site and look often. Very informative and fair in an unpretentious way. So right up my alley.

I recently bought a flash cord for my D3100 after seeing some of Larry Finks photos and loving the look and feel that to me really highlight emotions.

Being a 9 to 5 Dad of 3 kids means I’m not home a lot but when I am home it’s my job to get the kids ready for bed. One of the things that strike me is the number of different emotions we go through as we get ready and it’s a perfect time to put the camera in one hand and the flash in the other. I’m always amazed at the results I get. When you look at these you can really see so much. From what’s obvious to the subtleties between the kids.

From a technique perspective I shoot manual so I can stop motion(it’s action after all) and also have a decent depth of field as focus is not always so sharp. I’ve shot a couple of parties just for friend(I’m not a pro) and they always come out interesting and unique.

I hope you enjoy.

  1. REALLY COOL SHOTS. I often shoot single off-camera flash myself and i’m generally very happy with the results. But I have to say these are quite fun. Kudos

  2. Well I think the results are not bad at all. I’m not a flash user but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate flash photography from others. 🙂

    From what I have seen, b&w film is IMHO the best capture medium to use if you’re shooting flash. It seems to even out some of the problems with flash photography which are very obvious in colour shots. But digital b&w is nice, too, although you’d probably want to bump up the ISO for the sake of introducing a little bit of noise.

    The last one is really cute – love it!

    • Hey Frank, thanks for the kind words. I literally hold the camera in on hand and the flash in the other pointing it in the general direction. I actually like the way it’s hit or miss with the light. 1/200 at f8 is the manual setting I use.
