Do you have an electronic flash and are baffled on how it all works?

Have you ever felt like you hate your flash because you just can't figure it out?

If so, that is understandable. Today's flash units are so technically advanced that even pros find them intimidating!

However, with an understanding of the amazing features included in today's flash units, your flash unit can quickly become your new best friend.

In this course on using flash, I will take you step by step and demystify EVERYTHING about your flash.
If you have Nikon SB800 or SB900/910, Canon 580EX, 580EXII, & 600EX-RT I GOT YOU COVERED! I will show you how the flash unit works inside and out and if you don't have Canon or Nikon, you can still learn a ton of information about flashes and easily apply the same techniques to your flash.

I will show you:

  • How light works
  • How lighting angles affect your subject
  • How your flash works
  • What all those buttons and symbols mean
  • How to create soft light and hard light
  • How to use flash modifiers
  • How to mix flash with natural light
  • This course then takes you into applying the flash in a variety of situations like:
  • Frontal flash
  • Backlighting
  • Side lighting
  • Wireless flash

And you will learn how to obtain perfect flash exposure, how to work with the flash off-camera, and how to modify the light.

I am confident by the end of this course you will be saying: “I LOVE MY FLASH!"
