Tuesday 14th January - The Basics of Flash

Flash photography is an area many of us shy away from but tonight, Robin encouraged us to experiment and have a go.  First he described some of the typical options such as ETTL, Balanced Fill Flash, High Speed Sync and Second Curtain Sync.  We soon learned that there were many other variables and gadgets to consider when trying to achieve that perfectly exposed image.  After an hour and a half of theory, Robin demonstrated a couple of techniques for us to see the different effects.

With his many years of experience, subtle use of flash is second nature to Robin and his images should inspire us all to have a go.  We have a lot of catching up to do and will need to get out there and practise.

Thank you, Robin, for sharing your knowledge.
