Enlighten your photography with the illumination of accessory flash
Your camera's built-in flash is probably decent, but there's a reason why pros—and a growing number of enthusiasts—shoot with accessory strobes. Shoe-mount flashes provide the power, control and flexibility to push the light in your photography to the next level. Great flash work looks like natural light, and features such as wireless or tethered ("slave") for off-the-camera lighting provide new lighting possibilities. Advanced metering, manual options and a variety of automatic modes can give you extended control that goes beyond what built-in flash can offer.
Understand the fundamentals of flash to make the best purchasing decision
When it comes to flash, it's easy to consign its use for night when there isn't enough light. The real power of flash lies in its ability to improve the quality of almost any photograph, however, whether shot at twilight or midday. More than just a source of illumination when light is lacking, it's a phenomenal tool for affecting exposure, contrast and color.
Improve the quality of your still and moving images with auxiliary light sources
Photography is about painting with light. While available light is often the palette from which most of our photographs are created, there are times when we want much greater control than we can ever have over the sun. Electronic flashes and continuous light sources provide just that.
Tips for choosing and using these versatile, reasonably priced studio strobes
You've reached a point in your photography where you feel that shoe-mount flash just won't cut it anymore. You want something with more panache that says, "I'm good; I'm taking professional-level pictures."
