Learning how to work with off-camera flash can be a daunting task, and there are a lot of places where things can go wrong. If you are learning how to work with off-camera flash, this fantastic video tutorial will show you three common mistakes people make with it and how to fix them or avoid them entirely.
Coming to you from FJH Photography, this excellent video tutorial will show you three common mistakes photographers make when working with off-camera flash. By far, the most common I see is using overly complicated setups in the mistaken belief that more lights automatically make for better photos. Sure, having more lights available can enable new creative opportunities, but you might be surprised by the sort of professional shots you can create even with just a single light. And when you are first starting out, it is a better idea to work with a single light, as you will be working on building an intuitive understanding of the fundamental properties of light, such as relative source size, subject-to-source distance, and more, and doing this is far easier when you're not dealing with the complications of a multi-light setup. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
