Constant State of Education | Flash Scares Me | Raleigh Lifestyle Photographer

I'm a lucky woman to have such a willing family to play "models" for me whenever I need to practice something new.

I'm in a constant state of education.  This is a good thing, right? :)

My newest educational addition is an external flash.  Since I'm a lover of natural light, I haven't needed to use my flash.  My sessions mainly take place outdoors and give me the perfect lighting that I'm always looking for.  But... (yup, theres always a but).

I've got a Boudoir Session scheduled for this weekend, and my in-home studio has zero natural light at the time of her session.  I figured it was high time that I start slaying this little flash monster, thus the homeschooling of mommy began...

I will admit, flash scares me.  Always has.  So much so, that I actually debated selling it a week ago because I never use it.

So how did I begin these flash lessons?  I pulled up youtube.  I know I know, I should have read my manual first but sometimes, I'm lazy.  I found this awesome video which helped guide me in the right direction.  I then pulled out my flash manual.  I don't know if "read" is the right word to use here, but I did browse through it.

As soon as my oldest daughter woke up I pleaded with her to let me practice on her for a bit, she's always so willing to oblige.  Though I feel I still have SO MUCH to learn about this thing called flash, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.
