Every month, we task our talented with readers with a photographic assignment. The following gallery are some of our favorites that were submitted under the topic of "Off-Camera Flash." The selection includes the beautiful portraits you'd expect, as well as a few unexpected uses as well. If you'd like to participate in this month's challenge, check out Popphoto.com/Contests to get the subject.
