What I usually say is that I just don’t care for photographs using artificial light (flash). What I usually mean, however, is that I just don’t understand how to use flash to make interesting photographs. Basically, it’s a copout. 

I’m slowly trying to change that. 

The above image of Zim was taken with a new (to me) Hasselblad 503CXi and the Hasselblad D-Flash 40. Not terribly convenient, but with simple TTL operation I can get some practice without having to over-think everything. The rig looks like this…

        <div>
            <div><p>Hasselblad 503CXi with D-Flash 40</p></div>
        </div>

Yes, it’s a monster. I’m probably going to need a proper bracket, but for now this works.  I still may not know how to make an interesting image using Flash, but it’s not going to be for lack of trying.
