  • We look at a very wide range of topics starting off with the equipment required and the best lenses to use to get pleasing and flattering results. We also look at the use of flash and show how even in bright light flash can often give you far better images, by simply using a small amount of fill in flash. We also look at the framing and composition for portraits and the camera settings that will need to be used. There is also a look at some of the accessories that can be used with flash, in the lower light levels, to solve many of the common problems at that are experienced and how their usage affects the camera and flash settings that need to be used.

    This DVD is specific to just Canon EOS cameras due to the large amount of the time that we talk about the flash system and its set up with the cameras, although similar to other brands the settings are made in quite different places.
