BBL 2012-2013 | Purchase Flash Equipment
#11 PURCHASE FLASH EQUIPMENT
Why did I include this on my Bucket List?
I decided it was time to purchase a new flash because more and more often I was feeling limited by not having one, mostly while attempting to photograph personal events in dim lighting. However, after attending a workshop where I was able to experiment with flash photography, I also liked the idea of being able to do more creative things with it during client sessions.
Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?
I haven't done more than oooh and aaah over the flash so far, but I'm sure once I get the hang of using it I will wonder how I managed to go so long without it.
After doing tons of research and picking the brains of all of the photographers I know, I opted to get Canon's newest addition to their flash family: the Speedlite 600EX-RT. I won't bore you with the reasons why, but I felt like this was the best option given everything I learned.
Isn't it pretty...
