JANUARY 2016: MY ORIGINAL COMMENTS ON THE RADIO TRIGGERS I USE HAVE BEEN REMOVED BECAUSE TECHNOLOGY HAS ADVANCED SINCE 2009.

How to use Nikon CLS

Two of my previous posts discuss Nikon CLS and how I started the learning process. In the first, I discuss a great DVD on the subject and,  in the second, a great book.

In this post, I discussed a shoot in which I used CLS.

Important

Nikon CLS and the Canon equivalent system is very convenient and allows you to control the output of your flashes from your camera but it IS NOT ESSENTIAL. Incredibly good work is done every day with cheapie manual flash guns and the simplest radio triggers.

The important thing is to get that flash off of your camera.

 

Getting the exposure right.
