Good Fun – and Learning – at the Canon Booth at Photo Plus Expo

Several of the photographers who stopped by the Canon booth yesterday at Photo Plus Expo had an opportunity to shoot with the Canon 5D, Canon ST-E2 wireless transmitter, and two Canon Speedlite 580EXII flash units. For a change, I acted as the assistant :-)

The idea was to show how a snapshot with an on-camera flash (left) could be turned into a much cooler shot by using one or two off-camera flashes.

P.S. I am planning some one-day Canon Speedlite sessions (indoors and outdoors) for early next year. Shoot me an email if you are interesting in joining the photo fun: ricksammon at
