THE (NEARLY) INVISIBLE STROBE

October / 05 / 2017

Capturing images at high ISO’s has not only opened up new avenues for shooting in low light, but also turned handheld strobes into more powerful lighting tools. For two decades, Gerd Ludwig has been a master of using small TTL-flashes in unusual and unpredictable ways – to emphasize his message, maintain atmosphere, and create a personal vision, while simultaneously avoiding the obvious “strobe” look. In his presentation “Minus 2/3 – The (nearly) Invisible Strobe” at the upcoming PhotoPlusExpo in New York’s Javits Center on Thursday, October 26 at 4:30pm, Gerd will show a wide range of flashes uses, from utilizing them at high-speed sync in broad daylight to enhancing long exposures at night by firing them multiple times. He will share his methods and show examples both from his personal projects and his many years of photographing on assignments for National Geographic. Gerd will also share his secrets to surviving in today’s marketplace, using crowdfunding and social media (he has 330K Instagram followers) to get personal projects financed and seen by a wider audience.
