I’ve been interested in off-camera flash for a while now, and really fancied having a go, seeing what it could do for my photography – so, last week, I bit the bullet and ordered the Canon ST-E2 wireless transmitter (from Amazon UK, also available at Amazon US). It really wasn’t cheap – not by any means! – but it means I can now fire my 430 EX II flash wirelessly, with full ETTL support. While I was spending my hard-earned money (oh, how easy it is to spend too much money on photography!) I also bought a portable softbox kit too (Amazon UK – similiar one on Amazon US).
Anyways, enough of the talking, here’s my first off-camera flash shot, of my dog, jumping. Softbox was camera left, using a 430 EX II flash.
What do you think? Have you tried some off camera flash photography? There’s so much to learn, if you have any tips you’d like to share, please do leave a comment below!
