Exploring Smal Strobes – Why Should I Use a Speedlight?

I’ve been asked by Udi Tirosh, the owner of DIYPhotography.net, to do a series of guest posts on speedlights, also know as small flashes. I’m delighted to take on this wonderful challenge that I’ve entitled: Exploring Small Strobes.

Looking at Yanik’s Photo School 1st Poll , flash photography was the #1 request from you, my loyal viewers. So this series will fit perfectly to satisfy your flashgun hunger. The only difference is that you’ll be reading my article on the DIYPhotography.net Website instead of here. :)

So if you’ve been pondering the purchase of a Nikon SB-600, SB-900, Canon 430EX, 580EX II, or any other speedlight, this introductory post is for you. I look at why you should use a speedlight versus your built-in flash or even studio strobes. Feel free to comment here, on DIYPhotography.net or both!

Ok, enough babling! Click here to read my article. :)

And if you like the intro photo (or even if you don’t 😉 ), I’ll bee posting a complete “how to” tutorial very soon! I’ll go all out and show you my lighting setup and my post processing. Update: Click HERE to read it!

    I loved your article! If that drip/splash image is yours would you please do a write up about how to light and photograph that kind of shot? My efforts, so far, have been awful!
