Help needed!

NPhoto - - Over To You -

I think it is time for me to get some Speed­light train­ing to com­ple­ment the pho­tographs I take with my trusty Nikon D300s. I like to pho­to­graph a var­ied se­lec­tion of sub­jects from mo­tor­sport to agri­cul­ture to flow­ers and gar­dens within coun­try house es­tates. At times I re­alise that a bit of flash would help.

I par­tic­u­larly need help when try­ing to get the cor­rect ex­po­sure and power and di­rec­tion of the flash. Mal­colm Ross, via email Thanks for your let­ter, Mal­colm. Our monthly ded­i­cated Teach Your­self Flash se­ries fo­cuses on us­ing Speed­lights and other light­ing kit and tech­niques that can make all the dif­fer­ence. In is­sue 68 we looked at macro shots of plants, so this may suit your shoot­ing tastes. You might also en­joy our mo­tor­sport Ap­pren­tice in is­sue 66. For hands-on train­ing, the Nikon School has Speed­light cour­ses in April (see www.nikon.co.uk/train­ing).
