Canon 580 Speedlite Crash Course DVD Customer Review


I love to get emails like this. Shooting with off camera flash is no simple thing and we have all struggled with it, which is why I made the Canon Speedlite Crash Course DVD. Here is the letter and attached image:

Hey Michael! After watching the Speedlite Crash Course DVD last night, I was able to function fairly well today with my shoot using my 580 EXII. Honestly MIchael, before watching your Speedlite DVD, I was completely lost with my flash unit. I've had the thing for 4 months now, without using it all..... Your tips and techniques took me right to heart of how to use it very fast. From ISO exposure adjusting, to the differences between ambient and reflected light, you explained everything very precisely. I really feel comfortable with my flash unit now, and I know after many more times of watching the DVD, I will have mastered it. Your the best! Here is one of the images from the shoot. I did everything you said and it worked great!–Shannon

This picture from his first shoot after watching the Speedlite DVD Crash Course. For those of you who have watched it, you probably know why this isnt a very easy shot, as well as what he did to get it right:
Great work Shannon! It will get easier and easier now that you know the rules!
