More Gear…New Flash!

31 Dec

I am so SUPER PUMPED about my new Canon 580EX II speedlight, I can’t even begin to tell you.  I’ve always worked with natural lighting, so this is opening up a whole new world of photography to me.  It will make pictures just that much better and allow so much more to be done.  Creative juices are flowing.  If you’re a photog, please let me know what your best tips are for flash work!!!!  All suggestions welcome.

    The best advice I can give is—practice, practice, practice. I know you are good at that…I watched you play basketball. 🙂
    I honestly only like to use a flash if it is super dark…no crack of light seeping in anywhere. I LOVE natural light…it is always softer. But, if you do not want to chance having grainy pictures, then use your flash. The most I use my flash is at receptions.

    I know you will figure it all out. 🙂 Can’t wait to see your results.

    Congrats on the flash. I hate to use flash, but sometimes you have to. I know some really good photographers who use fill-flash almost all the time. I really only use it indoors, and only if there is not enough window light because it is too cloudy or too dark outside. My biggest tip: when using on-camera flash as your primary lighting source BOUNCE it off the ceiling or a close wall. You may have already known that, but if not I hope that helps!
