  Flash Photography Level 2 - Wireless

Interesting photography is all about shadows. Shadows help show 3 dimensions, shadows give mood. The main problem with direct flash from you cameras hot shoe is that it gives none of these.

The course will also cover how to mix flash with ambient light as well as how to kill ambient light even in the day time using manual controls.

Please note that this is not a studio flash course, it is solely aimed at external dedicated flash guns.
