Simply a Wonderfull Class for the Speedlight Challenged.

Terrific class for anyone struggling to use on camera flash effectively. I feel like I have a solid technical foundation in available light photography. But I've not been real happy with the results I get using flash. This class is just like opening up a toolbox full of useful techniques and tips. I'd add that I think Neil is a very effective presenter. I'm going to buy his book and watch his class on off camera lighting. I'd give it 10 stars if I could rate it twice. Highly recommended.

Neil presents the material in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. He demonstrates multiple techniques and scenarios, comparing pictures side-by-side to clearly illustrate results.
I recommend this class for anyone who is interested in improving their flash photography

Better photography

I've taken two of Neil's classes, Off-camera Flash Photography and Portraits with an On-camera Speed light. Neil is an excellent instructor, he presents the material in a straightforward and easy to understand manner and all of the techniques he shows you absolutely work. I would highly recommend these two classes for anyone who is interested in mastering his speed light either on-camera or off-camera.

I bounced my flashlight (obviously), but didn't like ...

At Last You Can Use your Flash on Camera!

Okay, I admit it, I have been scared of my speedlite! I have 2 of them, an older ettl model and a manual flash; both have been out of my bag at least 3 times in the past year .......

However, after watching Neil's clear explanation of how to use a speedlite on camera (lets face it, most togs tut tut at you if you do this and don't use off camera flash and I have been intimated by such snobbery) I feel empowered!

Ignore the one star review by Ludovic, he must be watching ...
