Good afternoon! Have you had any luck with photo sfxart tricks (just google it)? My buddy James made some very incredible pictures with their video tutorials.

I’m just starting out (well I used to shoot manual back in the late 80s and 90s). I’m getting the Nikon D7000 as an entry level camera. I can’t thank you enough for such a fantastic video and really hope to hear more tips from you!!

NormanicusDiabolicus says:

A really excellent instructive video. Very grateful for this!

lifelaughterluv says:

Thanks Flashwhisperer!! Your video provided ALL the flash instruction needed for me and my friends to start creating inspiring photos. Most importantly you did it in a nonsense easy-to-understand elegant way just like the great ones of history (i.e e=mc^2). BTW In order to thank you you moved me to create an account on youtube and to continue doing so I will share your video with all my friends and family.

You would only need to compensate if you are using your on-camera (pop-up) flash in manual mode. The TTL metering adjusts automatically. Mind you, you are going to lose a couple of stops of *potential* flash power, so you are going to be limited to about half the maximum camera-to-subject distance compared to an undiffused flash. With wax paper, tracing paper or frosted drafting film, you’ll lose a little less range, but not much — and you’re less likely to find it to hand on location.

Hi there, do you know “Photo SFXart Tricks” (do a Google search for it)? On their website you can watch a smart free video featuring the right way to shoot fantastic pictures. It made it possible for Daniel to shoot pictures which have that jaw-dropping-effect when you look at them. Perhaps it will work for you as well…

carson kressley?

altern8ive says:

thanks but you forgot to mention the need of a tripod or other support when using slow sync otherwise any background data the camera captures will be destroyed with the longer shutter. also, if you were using a piece of paper as a diffuser, would you not need to increase the flash’s output to compensate to fire through it? wax paper would be better option?

Thank you!

gerald quines says:

now i can point and shoot. thank you!

ThePhotoXpeditions says:

Wow! I love the ideas. Thank you for the tips!

Akkordinator says:

Dont cover your flash with a finger!!! It would give you a very red picture instead of decreasing the power!

Rationalific says:

Tobbe Mieden says:

outstanding videos..i needed to find out more on the 580 compared to the 430 and what i need the flash for is as a support light when shooting at racing circuits or dragracing standing next to the dragracing car, do you think i need the more powerfull 580 ? thanks

MonkeySpecs301 says:

Forgot to say, its an on camera flash (nex7), with only flash comp. but no manual flash adjustment. If i used an off camera flash with manual, and set it to low power……so low that theoretically, at a high iso it will fill the subject but NOT DISRUPT THE BACKGROUND LIGHTING. HELP!!!!!!!!!

MonkeySpecs301 says:

hi, i have a dilemma. I like to shoot indoors at high isos to achieve higher shutter speeds. However, as you have demonstrated here, when i use fill flash my subjects are blown out, and even worst, the room’s llight is overwhelmed by the flash. So i bring the iso to 100, the lighting is great, but the shutter is tooooo damn slooooow. What to do?

7:20 it didn’t warm it, the ambient light just started to come through

Hello there, do you know “PhotoSFXart” (just do a Google search for it…)? On their website you can watch a good free video demonstrating the right way to take awesome pictures. This made it possible for Joe to shoot photographs which leave you with that wow-effect whenever you take a look at them. I hope it will help you also.
