Speedlight Class

We had fun today!  We moved all over the Nevada Museum of Art with our models. This is Tony. we were on the fourth floor. Speedlight to camera right shooting through white umbrella. White reflector providing fill to camera left. The lovely gleam in the elevator doors was from the window directly behind us.

Can you take good portraits with just a single speedlight? Yes, you can.

    • It’s a flash that can go on your camera, but best used “off” camera.

      Thanks for your kind words! (PS – there is no “L” in my name…)
