Electronic Flash

When working in very low light or very bright light, it often becomes necessary to add artificial light to complete the exposure. The most popular source of artificial light is electronic flash. Electronic flash units are often built into lower priced cameras. As more is spent on a camera, the camera will include a hot shoe and/or electronic flash cord plug. Cameras with either option make it possible to use a wide variety of external flash units. Good basic external flash units are made by Sunpak.

The first 6 years I did photography I did not use flash. Then I saw two photographs by Mark Cohen that changed the way I thought about flash. I bought a flash the next day.

Here are the two photographs
