Flash Photography Week

This upcoming week (the week of the 6th of December, 2010), I am planning to write a bunch of articles on flash photography – basically everything from using your on-camera pop-up flash, to using speedlights for both on-camera and off-camera flash photography. Part 1 for some basics on TTL and various sync modes is almost ready and will be published tomorrow. Part 2 will be for using your pop-up flash to control other speedlights, specifically for Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS). Other articles and videos later this week will be for using speedlights both on-camera and off-camera for indoors and outdoors portraiture.

Stay tuned!
