Courtenay came to Vancouver from her home on Vancouver Island for the Pink concert. It was ironic that both of us travelers got together to shoot in Vancouver. By the time we got out to take pictures, it was getting late, and she was getting tired, so I wasn't able to spend as much time shooting with her as I was hoping. And, because I was travelling light, I had no light stand.As Frank Zappa said, Necessity is the mother of invention so I locked my camera down on a tripod, set it to ten second timer, framed the shot, pressed the button, then ran to hold the flash where I wanted it to be. Flash, run back, check how the image turned out, repeat. While it would have been easier to have a light stand or, even better, a lighting assistant, I think the shots turned out rather well.
