On Camera Flash Techniques

more news from the blog


  1. This guy has a sexy radio voice.. mmm.. no homo.

    Man people need to go over how aperture/iso/shutter speeds effect when using flash… ie; shutter speed doesn't do anything… NOBODY GOES OVER THESE ADVANCED STUFF… just basic stuff.. ugh.

  2. Not too sure why people are hating on Gary Fong's Lightsphere here? The Lightsphere is an amazing product and delivers exceptional results, especially with either the white or amber diffusers attached to it.

  3. Silly! Did you lose track of your objective? Why did the subject strike different poses and vary locations to test flash lighting? You should maybe have only changed flash techniques. All variables should remain the same as possible except for the variable intended to be examined. The purpose of the session was for an educational production not fantasizing. Good info. though!

  4. Lightsphere produces very dull looking images and drastically reduces your flash power. You are better off learning how to create directional light than investing in all these useless attachments. The only attachments worth buying are grids and gels for off camera flash. Its hard getting directional light when you bounce it into a dome and scatter the light everywhere. As this video has shown the lightsphere shot was the least interesting of the bunch.

  5. Or instead of the gary fong lightsphere you could do what he did originally and cut a hole in a round tupperware bowl and attach that to your flash. Same effect. If you need more diffusion add another bowl inside of the other one or line it with wax paper.

  6. Great video and explainations!  It was rather odd/surreal that every piece of equipment you were using is what I have exactly (and yes, the Gary Fong lightsphere is amazing).  Personalized training right here on YouTube for me today.  :)

  8. @theartofphotography Hi Ted, What's your opinion about those little omni bounce you put in front of the flash unit? And about that built in flash. When I lower the flash exposure compensation on my 7D everything looks pretty fine, as long as my ISO isn't too high. (but I only used it for simply light up one person) But I thought many nikon camera's didn't have that feature, I could be wrong. 🙂

  9. Well hello motor-mouth you sure can blow!! Straight to-it;to the point, get on with it!!!! Informative!! Great show!!!! Keep it like that and you'll be cooking on gas or is it light??????? so to speak! I'm not sure but I enjoyed!!!

  10. While this was informative and done well; I haven't shot any stairwell pics in quite a while. I think the different types of light either from bounce or on camera or whatever would be better explained if taken where most of us take our pictures using flash—- inside a structure like a house –say the living room or kitchen. Then the difference will be quite amazing. I'd just like something done that average Joe's can put to use. I hope this isn't out of line
