Ad Photography with Nikon Speedlights

Veteran advertising photographer Rod Banzon shocked me when he shared with me the fact that he sometimes shoots ad photo projects at 6 megapixels, fine JPEGs, ISO 800, illuminated with available light only. And his clients aren’t complaining! What aides Rod is a tripod, macro lense and lighting mastery. While I don’t yet have the cojones to duplicate his settings, I’m confident enough to shoot (at least) with portable Nikon Speedlights at lower ISO settings. Here are some pics of such shoots for David Salon.
