Off-camera flash done two ways. Find out which style might work best for you!
When adding light to your portraits, it’s clear that off-camera flash produces the most natural and beautiful results. The question that remains is how to best control the flash. Should you use your camera’s TTL metering system or is it best to take control and go full manual?
In this video Webinar presented by PocketWizard, guest photographer Rick Sammon joins host Joe Brady as they do an environmental portrait shoot using both methods. Rick is a master at making TTL off-camera flash easy and effective while Joe prefers full manual control for consistency and repeatability.
Which style is best for you?
Join us for this friendly battle between Rick and Joe as they each show their process for controlling off-camera flash for environmental portraits. Take advantage of the live chat as Rick and Joe will take your questions and discuss the features and benefits of each style. You may choose one side or the other, or perhaps even combine both – but whichever way you decide, this will be a fun and informative presentation!

Title: To TTL or Not to TTL?
Presenters: Joe Brady and Rick Sammon

Dale Travers shoots extreme sports and needs a system not only lightning fast, but also incredibly reliable. There’s often no time for a second chance with these athletes.
He writes, “I’ve been using the PW system for years. I love em.” When he got his hands on the PocketWizard MiniTT1® and FlexTT5®, he couldn’t wait to push them to the limit. Not only was he able to flawlessly freeze action, but could shoot at a shallow depth-of-field during the day, popping the subject from the background even more.
Take a look at his results. It’s clear both Dale and his subjects love what they do.
