Yesterday my new external flash arrived in the mail. It’s a Canon Speedlite 430EX II. I’m very excited. I think I will always prefer natural light but it will be nice to capture the indoor and low light moments without the harsh glare of the pop up. I read the manual yesterday and I have a feeling it’s going to have a steep learning curve but it should be fun!
Here’s a picture of one of the crafts Blake and I are doing for Valentines day. It was taken with my new flash bouncing off the window behind me.
Then I went back to natural light and took several pictures of our Galileo Thermometer.
These pictures still seem a little gray even though I did set a custom white balance for the last two pictures. I think I need to get a gray card and start setting the WB in post processing.
