    Flashguns / Flash Units

    A Flash is a device used in photography generating a flash of artificial light (typically 1/1000 to 1/200 of a second) at a colour temperature of about 5500 K to help light up a scene. A foremost purpose of a flash is to illuminate a dark scene. Other uses are capturing quickly moving objects or changing the quality of light. Flash refers either to the flash of light itself or to the electronic flash unit discharging the light. Most modern flash units are electronic, having evolved from single-use flashbulbs and flammable powders. Add an external flashgun to your camera when the power of the built-in Flash limits your photographic needs. The majority of flashguns will have a head that rotates and tilts to facilitate you to reflect light from a ceiling when using your camera in landscape or portrait formats. A picture taken with bounce flash will have much softer lighting & if used accurately will remove shadows behind your subject.

    Photography is all regarding light, and sometimes you’ll find yourself in a situation where there just isn’t sufficient of it. In these cases you’ll rapidly find that the integrated flash on your camera is pretty limited. With this in mind, maybe the most significant accessory you can get yourself is a descent flashgun, that way you can be assured of an abundant supply of light wherever you go. Light from flashguns is far more intense and much harsher than daylight and using direct flash can lead to some very unattractive portraits and washed out faces with demon like red eye. There are, certainly, ways of avoiding this. Present and modern flashes are very sophisticated and you should get one that is dedicated for your camera, meaning that the flash will work in combination with your camera’s metering and auto focus systems to take into account any accessible light and the distance the subject is from the camera and then regulate its output consequently.

    Most flashes now have heads that can tilt and spin which permits you to bounce the flash off a close wall or the ceiling giving a softer and more natural light. In addition, if you get a well-matched TTL flash cord you can move your flash away from the camera, giving you more scope to get creative. Some advanced end flashes and cameras allow you to do this wirelessly. Moving the Flash Units away from the camera significantly helps with red eye, while most DSLR Cameras now have some kind of red eye reduction flash mode.
