The best photographs move you—emotionally, intellectually, spiritually. There's almost a visceral reaction to a really striking photograph that communicates on all those levels.
Learn all about the Repeating Flash lighting technique from photographer Joe McNally. Watch as the Speedlights are set up for the shoot, settings are worked out and the final images are shot. Repeating flash, an advanced CLS (Creative Lighting System) technique allows you to use Speedlights as stroboscopic lights, capturing the movements of a dancer making her way across the stage.
Note: Camera dial configurations and designations can vary from model to model, so please be sure to check your manual for specifics.
