Street photography is the purest, most spontaneous way to create art with a camera. No studios, no props, no poses; all you need is the right equipment and a street with people on it...

Worth checking out.

Scott Morvay on Off-camera Flash

The Leica M isn't just for available light! Check out this how-to from Scott Morvay on using flash triggers for off-camera flash in this video...

This video is an introduction to off camera flash for Leica M Digital Photography. In future videos I will go into more details. The trigger and receiver shown in the video are from impact and on location I was shooting the profoto airs simply because I forgot my other set. As far as flashes go I use the Leica SF24D and a classic vivitar. I like the Vivitars because of their simplicity of use and the ability to use light modifiers on them. I will also talk about light modifiers in future videos.
