Strobist – Playing With Two Off Camera Flash – Yongnuo YN-560

Canon 40D with EF 85mm F/1.8

I’ve started to play with two off camera flash, and slowly getting the hang of it. For this practice shot, I took a photo of my Canon EOS 40D with a EF 85mm F/1.8 attached.

First thing I’ve learned from David The Strobist Hobby is to Vary the Position of The Light.

By taking the flash off of my camera I can change the position of the light thereby allowing me more flexibility on where to put it, I can now position the light where I need it. This allows the flash to define the three-dimensional shape of my subject. Strobist-Lightning 102
