109 — Flash photography tips — Interview with Joe McNally

Pho­tog­ra­phy pod­cast #109 fea­tures an Inter­view about flash pho­tog­ra­phy with well known pho­tog­ra­pher Joe McNally. Joe has been shoot­ing for decades for well known mag­a­zines life Life, Sports Illus­trated and National Geo­graphic. He was in town giv­ing a sem­i­nar on the vari­ety of light­ing tech­niques you can achieve by using just one or two flashes. After the sem­i­nar I sat down with Joe for this quick inter­view  to talk about flash tips. In this pod­cast we talk about dif­fus­ing your flash, trig­ger­ing your flash and Joe talks about per­sonal projects.

  1. Great show Marko. A while back I picked up a copy of Joe’s “The Hot Shoe Diaries” which opened my eyes to Nikon’s CLS sys­tem. My SB600’s and SU-800 com­man­der unit are indis­pens­able when I’m shoot­ing inte­ri­ors. Your lis­ten­ers that are Nikon shoot­ers should pick-up a copy of Joe’s book to see how pow­er­ful & easy to use the CLS sys­tem really is.

    Looks like the nikon CLS sys­tem is some­thing else I have to try. Thanks again for the podcast.
