Off Camera Flash pic 1

Photo Information
Thought I would show two methods of 'Off Camera Flash' I use -- the camera is my 1974 ASAHI PENTAX SPOTMATIC F which has a 'hot shoe' and the flash is the infamous VIVITAR 283 -- my one is the 'Made in Japan' version so it probably has the 'high trigger voltage' which could damage modern 'digital' cameras -- NO WORRIES with 'old PENTAXES !! ' THIS one shows the Vivitar with the 'extension cable. -- the sensor is removable and put onto the hot shoe attachment so it faces the subject and measures the reflected light -- I hold flash to the side and above the camera.

There's memories!

Usually improves portrait work, no red-eye, better shadow depth,
and the subject isn't as blinded with each shot.

I still have my "F". The last of a great series.

Now, there's a scene I could replicate here, but you've saved me the job and probably done it a whole lot better!
I was once in Montreal, for about 24 hours, in November! Nuff said!
