My 10-year old hamster lit with SB-5000 off-camera, 1/8 manual power. On-camera SB-300 operated as dumb optical trigger only @ 1/128 manual power. Key was bounced off 15" cardboard from a frozen pizza taped to a floor lamp. Ambient was fully suppressed, with fill and b/g being served by stray light from the key. The hamster received a $10 bribe for two shots.

Just an FYI - video link below…

While the below video link is mostly Single Speed-Light work (it is Single Speed-Light: OCF, rather than Single Speed-Light: hotshoe flash);
[Sorry, couldn’t find a/the POTN Single Speed-Light: OCF thread] - but thought the below might be interesting or helpful to some.

Perhaps a useful illustrative reminder (or entertaining link) with multiple examples that often for on-location, or destination gigs, that:
“LESS IS OFTEN MORE”… (regardless of camera/lighting manufacturer).
Keep it simple! Get-In and Get-out.
BARONZ STUDIOS: https://www.youtube.co​m/user/BARONZSTUDIO/vi​deos (external link)

Always enjoyed viewing this creative photographer’s work and the axiom principle of: “the eye of the photographer”
(aka the creative blending of lighting, exposure-triangle, composition, posing & “secret sauce” i.e. emotion/expression) all in upbeat videos.
[for the techie/gear-heads: this guy shot with a Canon camera until about two years ago when he switched to Nikon; but consistently only utilizes mostly one, or sometimes two OCF Speed-Light. (sometimes outside the lack of power shows, with some extra post processing or post-HDR, to compensate, but overall always consistent)].

Happy shooting everyone!
Enjoy.

Very cool. Thank you for sharing!


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

This is the ocf speedlite thread. The reference to hotshot flash in the title is meant to distinguish them from the studio strobes used in another thread. Once upon a time there was a solitary thread dedicated to off. Because it was a mixture of speedlite and portable strobes discussions it became a bit muddled as some results with one tyoe couldn't be achieved with the other. So the mods split the thread and gave the above title.

Thanks GONZOGOLF for the clarification.

That is what I kind of thought & remembered about the various threads even before I became a registered POTN member.
I included the disclaimer/caution in my post, since I remember others frustration of the flash meaning: Speedlight vs Strobe and observing some members becoming quite particular & unforgiving or intolerant; or others threads low-thresholds in the discussion and sharing in the pursuit of photography.
[One of the reasons I don’t spend much time here on POTN any more & reluctant to post; even though it is a fine forum with a wealth of knowledge for all levels of skill and administered by great people who deserve all our thanks & support for their countless hours of dedication]

Cheers & clicks to experienced you & all your years of contribution.
Happy continued shooting.

Mary

One reason I don't post here is cause I struggle with the word "creative" in the title. I'm pretty happy with my one speedlight off camera shots. While they are usually well lit and make for nice portraits (whether formal or informal) the results are usually pretty vanilla...not what I'd call "creative". Here's a couple from last fall.
