Tips for using your flash

Here’s a nice little video tutorial with a couple of great tips for using your flash more effectively. It also includes a good explanation on the relationship between your flash, and the shutter inside your camera.

I don’t know much at all about flash photography, so I learned a few things from this.

The video is produced by snapfactory.com, and studiolighting.net.

Tip: One way to even out brightness differences in your images

Tips from the top floor

Chris Marquardt, of the Tips from the Top Floor podcast, posted a great little video tip the other day on how to even out brightness differences in your images, using Photoshop. I’ve tried his tip and it’s quick, easy, and works surprisingly well. The tip starts about two minutes into the video. I highly recommend checking it out.

I only recently found Chris’s podcast, but I’m already a regular listener. It’s primarily an audio podcast, but he occasionally does video episodes as well. Although Chris can sometimes take a while to get to the point, he’s got some great information to share. You can check out the episodes directly on his site, or subscribe in iTunes.

If you’re looking for more photography-related podcasts, check out The Photocast Network. It’s a collection of podcasts, and they do a photo round table discussion called, Focus Ring.
