Flash Photography

Looking for some good tutorials about flash photography?

Rob Hall put together a full series on using flash for your photography.

This series of videos is designed to help off-camera flash beginners quickly advance to lighting with purpose. First, this series assumes you have an understanding of the exposure triangle, and are capable of controlling your camera in Manual mode. While it’s possible to use flash with semi-automatic modes, I think it’s a requirement to understand lighting in manual mode if you want to take control of all aspects of your images. This series is broken down into short, easy-to-digest lessons that progress you from balancing a single light, to using multiple lights outdoors to drive home the story in your image.

You can access all tutorial videos here. Enjoy! Or you can start watching the video below.
