Chapter 4 Intro | Transcription

Welcome to chapter four. This is all going to be about mastering our gear. Up until this point, well, you all should have good understanding between strobe and constant light and the differences, basically in how they expose differently in camera. We also covered understanding lighting in depth. We covered primary and secondary light positions, how to modify to soften or to create more specular versus more diffused light and so forth. We even talked about how to modify your color temperature for corrective versus creative purposes. Now, at this point, in getting into chapter four, we’re approaching when we’re going to start going into our actual shoots. Before we do that, we need to learn the actual gear, okay? Chapter Four is dedicated to actually mastering our flash gear. We need to learn how to use all the different functions between full feature and manual flashes and so forth. For you gearheads, well, you’re going to absolutely love this chapter, because it’s all about this stuff. For those of you that hate your gear, well, you’ll love this chapter because it’s so much better than having to read your manual, all right?

What are we going to talk about in Chapter Four? Well, we’re talking about first onboard versus hot shoe flash. We’re going to then move into full feature versus manual flash and basically the differences between them. At that point, we’ll be moving into TTL versus manual. Then we’ll be talking about TTL versus manual in terms of recycle time. You’re going to learn a lot of interesting things about TTL versus manual and why we prefer using manual mode whenever we’re using flash. From there, we’re going to go into flash power and zoom, HSS versus ND filters, so high speed sync versus a neutral density filter. We’ll then go into FCS or first curtain sync versus RCS, rear curtain sync, which we talked about a little bit earlier.
