During todays class we finally got to use the University’s new Metz flash guns. Unfortunately, as we didn’t realise that we would be using the flash guns only a few of us had our cameras. I went out with Phill Brown, Lauren Myers and Emily Cressey with two cameras, a Metz flash gun and a small reflective umbrella. I concentrated mainly on working with the set-up and let the girls get on with photographing Phill, who was our stand-in model. Getting to use the reflective umbrella was interesting as I’ve not had much opportunity to work with different reflectors. I have my own flash gun at home, so was happy that I understood enough about lighting and bouncing flash to create decent results.
