So, off-camera flash, what is it? Well, it's literally that. We're going to take the flash off the camera and do some very interesting things with it. Now the problem is, when the flash is on the camera, there is only so much you can do to modify the light. You can put a few attachments over it - I'm going to show you that - but basically, that's the end of the road. However, once we take the flash off the camera, then we can start using some things like this: umbrellas, light boxes, all sorts of good stuff.
Now, the camera and the flash, they can talk to each other wirelessly, which is really slick. That allows us to move these things around. But you can also use a dedicated flash cord and work like this, and so some pretty good stuff, especially when you're working in an event on location. So, the real trick is, once you take the flash off the camera, what are you going to do with it? And that's what we're going to talk about next.
