If you have recently purchased a speedlight, you might have noticed it comes with an piece of plastic. Before you throw that away, see what you can do with it.
Coming to you from David Bergman with Adorama TV, this quick and helpful video will show you how useful that piece of plastic, otherwise known as the "foot," that came with your speedlight is. I'll be the first to admit that the first time I bought a speedlight, I left it in the box and eventually threw said box in the recycling without ever figuring out what the purpose of the foot was. What made me particularly dense is that my first speedlight actually had wireless capabilities built in, which would have made the foot all the more useful. Even if you already knew what these are, you might not have known that they also have a threaded bottom, making it very easy to pop your speedlight onto a light stand. As you almost always want to get your flash off the camera to improve the look of your photos, a speedlight foot is the first (and probably cheapest) step to achieving that.
