“Thank you so much for hands-on with Flash! I have never shot with a Flash, but you truly have inspired me to buy and try, and I have some ideas for portraits and how to fine-tune the light. This course has been awakening as far as lighting goes. I am excited to try it out! So from fearing and actually hating flash lighting, I am now starting to play with some ideas of how my photos can get the wow factor! Thanks again for the inspiration and practical run through.”
