Light it Up
Official Fujifilm X Photographer Piet Van den Eynde released an ebook called ‘Light It Up. Techniques for Dramatic Off-Camera Flash’ (20% discount with code “fujirumors20” until April 8th only)
It’s an 185 page PDF ebook that caters both to the beginner and the more advanced user.
Although it’s not Fuji-specific, over 50% of the images in the book are shot with Fujifilm cameras (all images have EXIF info beneath them) and as a result it gives a nice overview of what you can do with those cameras.
There’s even a special paragraph on why Piet loves to use the X100 series for flash photography and there’s also a cool case study about how he stitched an environmental portrait panorama of 20000 pixels wide with the GFX and flash.
It’s a mix of lighting technique, lighting physics, set-up-shots and gear advice. He mentions lots of flash systems but you will notice that Godox is his favorite combo.
