Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, I swore that I would never leave the dark side to use flash in my photography. Warp speed a few months later, and an encounter with an aging Darth Vader, I’ve joined the bright side as the proud owner of three – yes three – Canon 580 EXII Speedlites! Yoda would be proud for sure! All this time I’ve been missing out big time from being on the flash bash wagon! With three units strategically positioned around your subject, you can add a lot of pop factor to their eys and hair, as shown in these samples. Stash the flashes behind a translucent umbrella and watch before your eyes just how everything comes out so nice and diffuse! If you’ve been wondering whether flash photography is worth it, I say jump in with both feet and don’t look back. A big thank you to the ever so pretty and talented model in this pic – it was a pleasure working with you again K.
