The Friedman Archives Press
Video lecture given in Malaysia, March 2011
Many people have heard about wireless flash, but think that it's too expensive or too complicated or the results are not worth the modest effort. For these folks, Gary Friedman has created a very non-intimidating Wireless Flash Introduction, which was presented in Malaysia in March 2011.
In the video I create this dramatic 2-flash portrait in real time - letting you see the process I go through to create the shot in less than 10 minutes!
In the course of this 50-minute video, you'll also learn:
The best and worst ways to use your pop-up flash (it's not always the worst light you can get!)
The basics of Wireless Flash
A live demonstration of Wireless Flash in use (and how the the dramatic portrait above was taken!)
How the Flash Protocol works
What you can do with 1, 2, and 3 wireless flashes
The one trick for making dating site portraits more appealing. :-)
Think just having a powerful flash means great looking images? Have a look at the portraits above, both of which were taken with the same Sony 58 flash. The left image was taken with the flash mounted on the camera and pointing straight ahead (yuk!). Moving the flash off-camera and using a simple diffuser, you can get the significantly more pleasing image on the right!
Note that this was produced using only ONE FLASH. So if you have an accessory flash you already have what you need to do this!
