Show Notes:

097 – Learning off-camera flash opens up a world of possibilities for your photography. Want images with more depth and dimension? Try off-camera flash. Want the freedom to shoot at 2pm on a sunny day, without your images looking dog-awful? Try off-camera flash!

This week, Elevate and Academy coach Kim Hartz joins me to demystify what is, for many photographers, an intimidating topic. We share the 3 simple steps to using a speedlight or strobe outdoors, discuss modifiers and mental blocks, and—we hope—leave you excited to start playing with off-camera flash.

What To Listen For:

  • The low-cost strobe Kim started out with, and what she's using now
  • How important is high-speed sync? (It depends on this X factor)
  • The lighting setup that saves marriages
  • Settings that keep your images from looking “flashy”
  • How to MacGyver a light modifier with common kitchen items

And if this episode leaves you hungry for more, you’ll want to join Kim's upcoming Academy Accelerator course: Gaining Confidence with Off-Camera Flash. This four-week class includes weekly calls and homework assignments, so you'll finish the month knowing how to create stunning on-location portraits using off-camera flash.
