Intro to Off-Camera Flash Photography – Polaroid Photo Shoot

In this video, I mix things up a bit and combine new and old technology. This is a quick self-portrait photo shoot using a 40+ year-old Polaroid camera while syncing 2 modern speedlights.

I will show you guys how to simply connect a modern flash to a vintage camera via the PC sync port. I will also trigger a second flash via optical remote sync to add a little backlight or rim light.

This is a very simple lighting technique and easy to set up. The cool thing is that we’re using a vintage film camera with modern flashes and doing everything manually.
