Multiple Flash Location Photography

The photographs in this issue’s Showcase were made by Joe Kane, a Photographer at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Photographers in hospitals and other institutions, in addition to producing images of a medical and scientific nature, are often called upon to take photographs of people in various settings. A number of these photographs are unfortunately taken with a single on-camera flash with the result having a very dark background what Joe terms the “black hole.” The photographs on this page demonstrate an alternative approach using additional small flashes placed strategically around the location where a person or a group of people is being photographed.

For a detailed explanation of this technique and more photographs see Joe’s Insight offering: “Avoiding the Black Hole” in this issue.
