This is my second album of remote wireless flash photography test shots. During the first test all of the pictures were taken inside my house. For this second round of testing, I headed out to the back yard. It was the day after the spring equinox, around 8:00 a.m. — about 45 minutes after sunrise. I had taken only a couple of photos when the first drops of rain began to fall.

The rain started to increase, so I decided to pack it in and call it a day. Even though my Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera and Panasonic 12-35mm lens are both weather sealed, my Olympus FL-600R wireless flash is not. Because I could conduct my tests on another day, there was no point in taking any chances.

Most of the photos in this second round of testing were taken during a 15-minute period the following morning — equally cloudy, but less wet, than the day before — starting about 10 minutes after sunrise. Over the two days I took a total of 51 pictures, 11 of which can be found in this album.

All in all this second test was a great success! I’m quite pleased with the resulting images, and I learned a lot in the process, which I will be able to apply on future photographic outings. Because it was such a good experience, and because I still have more to learn, I plan on conducting more remote wireless flash photography tests in the near future.

You can see more remote flash test shots in the Remote Flash Test #1 album.
