I have a 580 EX MkII flash and I have to confess, I struggle with it. There is a lot of technology and knowledge tied up in knowing how flashes work and using that knowledge to shape the light and get the outcome you want.
I have a couple of books like this one one but have really lacked the enthusiasm to really get into it, and part of that is because of a lack of good affordable tools. So imagine my delight when I am surfing around on Kickstarter (I like to lie in bed with my tablet and do that in the weekends) and I found this amazing product.
Yes dear reader, I backed this baby quick smart, its an added bonus when the product is already SO POPULAR that its target has well and truly been reached, I know Im onto a good thing then.
If you have a flash and you want to do more than blast your subject with lots of uncontrolled light, then I really recommend you click on the link above and have a look!
Are there any Kickstarters out there you are excited about?
