Imagine the nicest breakfast at home. Yummy strawberry puree on warm toasted bread. Lovely morning sunlight seeping through soft white curtains. I arrived at Old Town White Coffee at 4 am and ordered this breakfast dish. There were no sun, no windows. Just a handful of sleepy customers. How?
Enter the built-in wireless flash system of Olympus cameras. The tiny onboard flash of the E-PL2 camera was used to trigger a FL-36R flash remotely. No wires, no cumbersome triggers and full TTL metering retained. As you can see, the FL-36R comes with a handy table stand. To simulate broad window light, I slipped a cheap folding China-made softbox over it. Everything unfolded and stowed back into the camera bag in less than a minute. Bon Appétit!
