Nick Turpin was fea­tured on Stro­bist in 2009 for an inter­est­ing Men’s Health photo shoot he did: in tak­ing street photos of var­i­ous well-dressed peo­ple, he under­ex­posed the ambi­ent light and then used a few strobes to “carve in some high­lights”; and since he did­n’t need tripods or stands for such shots he was fine even in a photo-unfriend­ly city like Lon­don (In-Pub­lic is Turpin’s street photog­ra­phy site.)
