How To Create Magical Light In Your Image WITHOUT Risking Over or Underexposure

How To Achieve Balance In Low Light With Flash WITHOUT Overexposing Your Images

This is a very popular video shot by Gavin Hoey for Adorama TV

I’m a big fan of these videos and you’ll see several of them here on the site. In this video Gavin uses his camera meter first to set the mood of his shots followed up by using his handheld light meter to dial in his manual flash. Gavin is also showing you how he edits the image in Photoshop afterwards.
