I found this video extremely informative. As much as I know about cameras, I am unhappy about how little I know about using a flash. I never understood what flash sync or high speed flash sync was until I saw this video. So here I am spreading the wealth. By the end of the year I plan on purchasing my first flash and grappling my lack of flash experience directly.
Also, we (as in Oklahoma and the rest of the Midwest) have been in blizzard-like conditions for the past four days. I have been able to sink a lot of time into researching what my next camera should be. I will update my blog with a post detailing why choosing a new camera is no easy matter. I'm hoping to ultimately make a quick decision and order it soon. All of this and more coming soon!
