11. Flash Photography - 3 Reasons Why I Love It!
Honestly flash photography scared me once upon a time. I used to think it was SO hard and I was more interested in buying new lenses before actually buying a flash... but to be honest, learning how to manage and create light has brought my photography to the next level more than any lens ever could. It has also enhanced my knowledge of photography and I genuinely feel way more confident in every single situation because I understand how light affect my images. If you're afraid or just haven't had the chance to explore it I definitely encourage you to listen to this episode and take note! I promise your interest in flash photography will grow and I'm sorry in advance for the hit it may take on your bank account once you get addicted this part of the photography world. Enjoy!
