This is OCF (off camera flash) at it’s cheapest, along with the use of some basic rules and techniques.

I’ve used tabletop tripods a great deal when younger, mostly for macro work. Later, I found my use of these small supports waned, mostly due to equipment getting heavier.
This was the first outing for the Elinchrom ELB400 in early spring 2016. This particular image was among the last to be shot on that day.
The final day at the World Food Championships was the big one. All category winners were going head to head with the aim of being crowned WFC World Champion 2016, and taking home the $100,000 prize.
