Off Camera Flash Tips

This video explains how to use an off camera wireless flash. You will see a difference that taking your flash off the camera makes. When it is attached to the hot shoe of your camera, images you get look quite flat.

It is better to take the flash unit off the camera and position it on a side and slightly above your subject.

In the past we needed a cord to connect the camera and the flash. Today modern cameras (and we use Nikob D300) allow triggering an off camera flash from a built in flash. You need to configure the pop up flash to work in a commander mode (go to your camera menu). Then set up your external flash as well so that it is a slave. Note the Channel number and Group name, they must be identical on the camera and on the flash. You will be able to use your off camera flash in TTL mode.
