    Outdoor Flash

    The Basics

    Introduction to outdoor flash photography.

    In this first episode, Mark shares his tricks to start easily with flash photography on location.

    He uses the classic ELB 400, a portable battery unit with extreme light-weight heads.

    Mark explains what you can do while using flash outdoor; add drama to your composition by overpowering the sun, make a fill-in on your shadows during strong sunny days or separate your subject from the background.
