My name is Anthony Bogucki. I’m 22 years old and I am a strobist photographer from the Greater Detroit area. I had always felt photography was about capturing a moment. As soon as I started experimenting with off-camera lighting, my perception of photography suddenly shifted to being about creating a moment. Flash photography has given me greater freedom in materializing the vision I see in my mind by allowing me more granular control over my final image. There’s no need to be chasing that golden hour light when you can create your own. I have done a large photo series on flowers but recently have branched off into portraits and other still subjects. I was drawn to floral subjects because I think they enforce the idea of creating a moment, flowers are frequently picked and taken out of their environment to be experienced on their own in another.
