Creative Way of Using Flashes

This video shows how you can use flashes even on a sunny day to get really creative photos. The cross effect is achieved because two flashes light the subject from different sides, crossing their rays at the subject.

One flash is directed down at 45 degrees and the other one is placed on the ground. Both of them are controlled from the built in (pop up) flash on the camera. The upper flash has a colored filter and therefore it gives warmer light, while the other one gives colder light. It adds to the effect.

The camera is set to 1/125 sec shutter speed and f22 aperture. Flashes are manually set to half power.
