My second online video course, Working with Speedlites: Multiple Flash Photography, just launched on Like the first course (on one-flash photography), this course was months in the making. Again, I want to give a huge shout of thanks to every Canonista who asked the gang at KT to produce Canon-specific training.

The course has 13 segments and runs 97 minutes. It covers a wide range of concepts, techniques, and gear that you can use to make great images with two or more Speedlites. I demonstrate how to set up the master Speedlite and one or more slaves. I take the mystery out of the Canon ratios and shoot multiple Speedlites in a variety of ways.

As for the topics that I covered:

  1. Introduction: The Importance of Shadows
  2. Manual Flash and Gear
  3. ETTL Flash and Gear
  4. One-Light Portraits
  5. More Soft Light Techniques
  6. Triggering A One-Light Outdoor Portrait
  7. Setting the Master Speedlite
  8. Setting the Slave Speedlite(s)
  9. Putting It All Together
  10. Creating Beauty Light
  11. Making a Key and Accent Light Set-Up
  12. How to Photograph a Group
  13. After Dark

    Excellent lesson Syl. Can you provide part numbers (B&H links) to the Lovegrove type Manfrotto mini ball head and spigots for the flash adapter you utilized in the lesson. Thanks

    Awesome lesson Syl! Between this and your book, you convinced me to buy a new charger, new batteries, and an extra long ETTL cord (which I just got, thanks!). So much great info.
    Have you tried the Phottix Odin remotes yet? Just wondering what your opinion is, as they look like they may be a great contender!
