Ok. I know it’s been a while since I posted anything photography related. Well… I have some exciting news… I got a new external flash! It’s a very early Christmas present, but I am so excited about it!
Why would I get an external flash? Isn’t the one on the camera “good enough”? First. I NEVER thought that the next photography related purchase I would buy would be a flash. Since I take most of my photos in the daylight I really didn’t think that I would ever need it. I now realize how much a flash can be used for and it can give SO much flexibility! !
Here are some examples of what an external flash can do. I am sure that in the next few months I will have a lot more photos to compare, but since I just got this tonight… these example will have to do! (please don’t judge my in-experience here!!!)
So which lighting option would you choose? I personally like the middle right pic… I think it gives nice shadows and lighting! There is so much more I will need to learn, but to say the least… I will have fun with my SB-910!
