Flash Photography

As we get deeper into December, the days are getting shorter and the countdown to the 21st of the month continues. Now why is December 21st so special? From a figurative stand-point, it is the shortest day of the year. So with the days getting shorter, the hours of available light are fading away with them. With this in mind, I decided it was time to buy an external flash for my camera. So after spending a few days of contemplating what to get, I ended up settling for something cheap to learn the basics with. A Canon Speedlite 270EX to be exact. Yesterday, I finally managed to get out to Grouse for the afternoon and early evening and get some shooting done. I spent most of yesterday shooting in the newly opened Quiksilver terrain park with fellow tight-pant wearing skiers, Bryce Mclean and Peter Warkentin. So without further ado, here are the results from my first day of shooting with the new flash.

Bryce Mclean with a shifty-on to the down box.

Peter Warkentin, same trick, different feature.
