Learn to Love Your Speedlights

presented by David Hobby (Strobist)

Do you feel a little awkward when using flash? That’s okay. We all felt that way at one point. So why not spend an afternoon getting better acquainted with your speedlights?

Barely bigger than a hot dog in a bun, your flash can do amazing things if you let it. Don’t worry, we won’t spend the afternoon mired in math and tech talk. Good lighting is actually more like cooking than anything else. So leave your slide rule (and your flash anxiety) in the car. Instead, bring your curiosity and a willingness to learn.

By dinnertime, you’ll have a much better understanding of your speedlights—and how they can help you develop your vision as a photographer.
