To the viewer standing by observing the scene, there is a cacophony of flashes going off. Including the light from another flash in the photo both makes for a more interesting image and a more accurate depiction of the scene itself.

In retrospect, though, it turns out that there wasn’t a strobe in that photo, but just a spotlight!

On a technical note, it’s not that hard to catch the flash. Most cameras have that distinct red AF-assist light shining on the subject so you know that the flash will fire shortly.

He once gave me some really helpful advice on photojournalism after I got talking to him at a protest here in London. His words were just as inspiring as his pictures.

It’s good to see the pros experimenting with techniques and trying something new, even if it runs the risk of not getting the shot at all.
