Must be a Nikon guy Rofling a thithy tooth of a power @ 3:31. Skip the junk and go straight to that part

colxdark says:

Hi how come the sb900 can tell you what Aperture to use when you put the flash in Manual but the sb700 can’t

Reza Zahiri says:

Very nice and informative video, I was really interested in the last part which you promised to do in another video 🙂 Is that video out?
Thanks again

baselb80 says:

if you are on ttl mode and you want to use a gel on the flash for artistic effect or for compensating for the color of light do you need to change the white balance?can we use gels with ttl flash mode?

You will learn the essential aspects of photography. Probably nothing that you can’t get online or from books but you’ll get grants and loans to pay your way through the next 4 years and meet like minded people and be able to have sex with them if you’re lucky. The qualification however, would help you stand out from the droves of people who quit their jobs to become ‘professional’ photographers with their D3100 cameras on auto mode lol.

wohoo Dom rules

idphua says:

Great vid!!!

uplift20 says:

That’s how to end a video. “This is getting far too confusing”, love it all can’t wait for part two.

Dombowerphoto says:

no the channel is different. it does explain it all in the manual you get with every flash you buy. did you not get a manual?

RobertStewartScott says:

Great book for Nikon users wanting to start using flashes/speedlights. Hot Shoe Diaries by Joe McNally, Buy it! It’s the baws!

You’ll learn that it’s a waste of money spending that kind of money at a university. I’ve heard lots of complaints from university photography students. I taught myself photography and you get to learn so much more just by watching YouTube channels like AdoramaTV (digital photography One on One), Dombowerphoto and if you wanna spend money then lynda[dot]com > Subject > Photography is a GREAT affordable place.

too good…. best flash thingy ever!

ApexIXMR says:

I usually set my pop-up flash on my Hasselblad to “Auto”.

If you only have a 30 tooth I reckon you’re missing a few!

Lagged2Death says:

Looking forward to your upcoming short videos on this topic!

You may want to mention that exposure compensation only interacts with the flash this way on Nikon gear. On Canon gear, exposure compensation only effects the ambient exposure.

I’m a hobbyist who’s gotten his first flash and I’m sort of appalled at how complicated the automatic TTL flash metering is. It’s soooo easy to make an assertion about the TTL systems that turns out to only be true in some circumstances.

Zeno C says:

Dom! this was some funny shit at 4:51………..

nighti1983 says:

Thx. And the Channel? So I can further distuingish between different kind of groups, e.g. 4/6 flashes instead of 2/3 (if I want to have different exp. comp.)?

Dombowerphoto says:

its the best power in the world

Dombowerphoto says:

that is a very good question…. i might make a video asking for people to give their advice.

Dombowerphoto says:

what is there to explain? you set different flashes to different groups so that you can control the flashes power output separately from one another. Or am i missing something?

Dombowerphoto says:

nope, not that i have ever found.

Alfa Lee says:

Hey Dom, is there any way to check how much power did the flash used when it is on TTL mode? Say 1/32 1/16 ….

Dombowerphoto says:

of course

ronkishen says:

Is it possible to shoot with camera on M mode and flash on TTL ?

nighti1983 says:

Maybe you can explain the different kind if groups in a flash setup (A+B+C)? Thanks!

Dombowerphoto says:

ah ha there will be a video on my ring light coming very soon

Dombowerphoto says:

good advice. ill try it out

Dombowerphoto says:

auto also controls iso and will trigger a pop up flash. programme just changes aperture and shutterspeed

Dombowerphoto says:

so true! and if you use darker gells the absorbe more light energy and melt faster. and can get stuck on the front of your lens, a good way to work around that is to have the flash at a zoom setting, the more it is zoomed the further away the flash element is from the gel, (it kinda retreats to the back of the flash head)

Dombowerphoto says:

@ImSuchASpecialGirl never taken any classes. i find formal education a bit boring

Dombowerphoto says:

yes it does. Just last night i was shooting a club and the camera is always on Manual mode, the flash is on ttl (i was even doing it off camera) and i just dial in a negative exposure compensation and the shutter and aperture dont change (cos i am in manual) but the flash exposure becomes a little less strong.

Dombowerphoto says:

If you like this video can you please give it a thumbs up, every thumbs up i get is greatly appreciated.

nikhilsrl says:

@Dombowerphoto good info

bratvlad says:

Hey Dom I watched the video and hoped I would here an answer to my question. My question is when I’m in M mode, using Flash in TTL can I just use the exposure comp (for flash) button that is on the right side of the camera? since it shouldn’t effect camera setting anyways right? This option gives me faster access and only with one hand can be done. Thanks

impavido79 says:

3:29 lol thirty-tooth of a power

truknayr23 says:

hahaha….. thanks for breaking it down…. nice intro too!!!!

sonikku10 says:

I look forward to this new series 🙂

FriscoJarretts says:

From America, and a new SLR user… Thanks for the tips.

dnwphoto says:

helpful video, one comment though, I would be careful with putting the gel directly on the flash head because you can actually melt the gel onto the flash head since the flash gets hot
