  1. Glad it helped. If you have any questions about flash photography, please don't hesitate to ask. They say . . if you are a natural light photographer you are at the mercy of the sun . . . if you are a flash photographer, the sun becomes just another piece of your lighting set-up!

  2. I cannot imagine anything better for news journalistic photography, than the Lite-Scoop 3. Like journalistic wedding coverage, it is what this flash modifier was designed to do!

  3. So if you are using a 28-70 zoom… what zoom mm should you be at to be perfect.. or would it best to use a non zoom lense like a sigma 1.4 35 mm

  4. Quite literally the best teaching videos on YouTube!
    I'll be sharing these in the beginner groups especially thank you so much!

  5. You said to set your aperture at 4.5. I have done this but when talking a flash picture of more than 1 person, I am focusing on the main person but depth of field causes others to be out of focus.. So I am assuming that you can set the aperture to a higher number to alleviate that issue?

  6. Should the focus point of the lens therefore be on 100mm if the ss must be fixed on 1/200?

  8. Im perplexed.   When I follow your settings,  the meter at the bottom in my view finder goes off the chart to the left…It indicates that I don't have balance metering in my scene..however, if I ignore it, keep the settings as you've indicated and turn on the flash…it does seem to comeout alright…but why?   The ambient light is not the light the flash is metering .. the flash is metering on the thing I'm focused on…I don't get It…? When I turn off the flash, set my settings manually including  compensation for the most powerful light source in the room.  then turn on the flash…it seems to come out with a bit too much lighting still for windows lighting …Is part of the methodology to ignore what the light meter is showing in your viewfinder when you fix your settings?   As I say I usually do the setting within the camera BEFORE I turn on the flash.. What am I  not dong right here?

  9. I like your videos on flash photography. I hardly ever use a flash because I can use lightroom to adjust the exposure if I need to. That being said there are times that I do use a flash but then it's usually the camera and not my Canon EX430. I can start using it to see how the pics come out. I just discovered you and like your presentations. I am an amateur and spent years trying to understand IS/APERTURE/SHUTTER SPEED and F-STOP. I understand and can use them but still do most of my photography in P mose although I do set my ISO to limit at 800. I use a tripod and things work out pretty well. I would like to use M mode as I know once you get experience the pics will come out better. Anyway, keep the videos coming. You do a great job. I'm going to see what else you have availabe.

  10. Thanks so much for that explanation..I always thought flash stopped motion and couldn't understand why my shots were blurry…so I would either close the aperture or shorten the shutter speed and not realize the flash was overriding my settings at the moment of flash…I've been trying your suggestions and they work like a champ!!

  11. Thanks Bob. The light scoop helps me get good quality flash shots with no real set up time available. I have 2 , also thanks for the always reliable info about flash! People if you have kids and family events and want keeper photos, listen to this guy!!

  12. Flash settings for indoor amateurs sports – Using F2.8 – I am talking about Indoor Soccer. Thanks for any advice

  13. I have been struggling with flash photography for years. Because of this simple clear video which was presented so clearly and calmly I am now not afraid to whip out my speed light any more. I wrote the settings onto the flash difuser to have them but have now entered the settings into one of my Custom Modes C1 on my EOS 6D. So for flash I just turn the dial to C1 and away I go with my Speed light. many Thanks. Subscribed and looking forward to view your other videos.
