Wireless Flash Techniques for Outdoor and Nature Photographers

If I could show you some techniques that take your outdoor and nature photography from ‘ho-hum’ to WOW, and at no risk to you, wouldn’t you want to know about it?

If you are like me you’ve been out in the field photographing some amazing scenery or action adventure only to return to your office with disappointing results and then wonder what needs to change.

Then one day I decided to incorporate a pretty simple technique of adding light to some of my scenes and what I learned was, while this wasn’t necessarily the trick that would work in every situation, it resulted in more dramatic outdoor and nature photography.

So, I began to experiment by adding light to many of my outdoor subjects and during this time I developed some techniques that allow me to show my subjects the way that I envision. I also learned that flash is not just for photographing people indoors.  Flash can create amazing lighting effects for outdoor scenes and subjects.  Let me show you how! Click here
