Speedliter’s Intensive – my all-day seminar on flash photography will travel to seven more cities before the end of the year. Use the discount code PX25 to save $25. San Francisco (Dec 1), Seattle (Dec 7), [...]
Here is the first of two videos that we shot this week while I was evaluating Canon’s new 600EX-RT Speedlite and the ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter. Go with me on location for a series of quick shoots where I put the new gear to the test indoors and outside. Later, in Part Two, I’ll take you [...]

That’s right, Jake plays the most humble and, I [...]
I’ll wager that the part about off-camera flash that photographers hate the most is the connection between the Speedlite and the lightstand. Yes, I’m talking about you, Mr. Coldshoe. Either you’re made of metal (which can short out the pins on the bottom of my flash) or you’re made of [...]
