Warning flashing lights!

Happy New Year all! In today’s lecture I learnt more about the canon 430 Speedlight I have been using. I learnt how to use the flashgun on manual and how to correctly meter my images using the flash to subject distance calculation. I have uploaded some of the shots taken today. The first two are taken on full power with no filters and all metered using the above technique. The second two shots were taken using a white card attachment to the flashgun which acted as a reflector taking some of the power out of the flash creating a softer feel. The third range of images were taken using colours in the walls around me and using coloured filters to bounce the light from the flashgun. Finally I have included my favourite shots from the day which have been re touched in Photoshop. Enjoy!
