    FLash Tutorials

    Hey all

    Just wondering if anyone knew of any tutorials regardings flash setups?

    Similar to the ones you'd get for photoshop.

    Would love to have a read of some basic tutorials that I can have a play with at home.

    Thanks

    www.strobist.blogspot.com is going to be your best bet. There's a wealth of knowledge on their for off camera flash. Start with Lighting 101 then work your way through 102.

    Also check out Zack Arias website, he has some good info on their also.

    Another vote for strobist here: I've looked around and have found nothing better. In conjunction with this group here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/654655@N22/ you can actually do each suggested exercise. I would suggest starting from the beginning as well, and actually taking the shots as suggested. A few months ago I basically just read through it all and learnt a bit, but now I'm going through it again actually doing the exercises and am learning 10 times as much.

    Also Tony just reminded me, if you have a flickr account, there's a group called StrobeAust, which is for strobists in Australia to talk about set up, equipment, and organising meet ups and posting photos. I learn a lot from there also as most of the shots posted have the equipment used for the shots listed and also settings for flashes etc. I find it helps me a lot.

    Ok there's a start, we could see if any models are free to do TFP/TFCD shoots? Maybe 2hrs of their time? In a park/beach scene for more fashion type shots or hotel room for like glamour shots?

    What gear/lighting modifiers do you have?

    What ideas have you got Tony? Feel free to PM me too, I'm not far from the northern beaches, I'm just in ryde anyways.
