Add an amazing new dimension to your images by using your Flash!
A flash is the single most important accessory for your camera.
With 'lightning in a bottle', you can freeze action solid, tame harsh midday sunlight, balance (or unbalance) the color in a scene, mimic studio lighting, and produce wild and weird effects — all with no software required.
But flash also comes with it's own set of problems... unless you know the tricks to avoiding them.
In this ebook, I'll show you these simple techniques.
Learn how to use both your camera's internal popup flash and external flash to create stunning photos in any lighting situation!
Your subject is dimly lit, or doesn’t appear in the photo at all. Source
The background is black. Source
Your subject is washed out, or the highlights are too bright. Source
Your photo has glare and/or reflections. Source
Your subject has black “halo” shadows directly behind him. Source
Your human subject’s eyes are red, or your non-human subject’s eyes are green/white/yellow. Source
You don't need to purchase a flash to benefit from this e-book.
But if you'd like to purchase an external flash, I'll explain the different kinds of flashes and which ones I recommend.
And I'll send you some sources for ultra-cheap flashes.
We'll start with a general overview of what the Flash accomplishes and why it has such a bad reputation. And I'll provide some techniques so you can immediately start to use your Flash effectively.
Almost all cameras come with a flash. Unfortunately, the position of this flash (right near your camera's lens) causes most of the problems we associate with Flash. I'll provide four ways you can use your inbuilt flash without the problems!
These external flashes can sit on top of your camera, or even be used when not physically connected to your camera. I'll explain the most common types of external flashes and when to use each type.
What is it that separates a great flash photo from a terrible flash photo? Well, great flash photos don’t look like flash photos. In this chapter, I'll show you how to accomplish exactly that! I'll also talk about the different ways to diffuse (or concentrate) your flash's light.
Flash isn't just to be used when it's dark. Using Fill Flash will actually help you take better photos in the midday sun! I'll also explain a technique to use flash when there is some ambient light in your scene, but not enough to fully light your subject.
When using a flash, you can't usually set a shutter speed on your camera faster than 1/250 second. I'll explain why, as well as a technique to still be able to photograph fast action with a flash called "High Speed Sync".
I'll explain the common problems with photos that use a flash. I'll show you how to recognize each type, and provide techniques to eliminate them all.
Now, let's have a good time with all your new-found flash powers. I'll show you how to capture some really fantastic effects with slow sync flash; using flash gels; and capturing really high speeds (like wings of a hummingbird).
I've avoided using technical jargon in my courses and ebooks, so you'll get amazing insights; even if you're new to photography. And when I use a term that not everyone would know, I link to a separate article that fully explains the term.
More advanced photographers will love the "Assignments" section where I challenge you to take your camera to the limits!
And you can use your current camera! My techniques work for Point and Shoot, Bridge and DSLR cameras - even the camera on your phone!
Learn how to use your camera by photographing different modes of transport.
When you purchase "Flash Photography", I'll include "Transport Photography" for free. This is an 74 page ebook that will help you learn how to use your camera by showing you how to take amazing photos of cars, trains and planes.
