Using Flash Effectively and Creatively$229.00

Now with the remote exposure control that the Nikon CLS and Canon E-TTL systems give remarkable ability for the photographer to take their little strobes and produce the kind of lighting that most people think that only large and expensive studio strobes can produce but in a small, inexpensive and quick to use package. Combine two speedlights with two light stands, an umbrella and a clamp and the result is a small portable studio or location lighting setup that will give you professional results for a fraction of the cost and bulk of a "studio strobe" kit. In this most informative online photography course, we will show you how all of this is possible as well as how to do things with these small strobes that you can't do with big lights.
