Reception Lighting : Using Multiple Off-Camera Flashes
When it comes to off-camera flash, the thought alone can be daunting – how do you start? What modifiers do you use? What if it’s sunny? Is off-camera flash meant for portraits? When do you use it?

Wedding Photography Lightroom Presets

I’m a huge believer in getting the image right at the time of capture, making sure that your lighting, […]
