    I cried when I listened to this as I drove away from my first wedding this weekend. This would have been soooo helpful to know before I started shooting in the very dark small room where the ceremony took place.

    I've just listened to this and got SO much out of it – thank you Kerry and Neil. Having spent the last year working out how to get my flash off-camera, this has made it so much clearer about how to use it on-camera!! I have Neil's book, which is excellent – but having him talk through it with Kerry asking all the questions I've been thinking has really sorted it out in my head. Brilliant brilliant brilliant and thank you again!!!!

    Neil is a genius with on camera flash. All who say the flash has to be off the camera need to read his website.

    If we have to rely on very high ISOs how can we freeze the subjects moving during dancing.

  9. I've been reading Neils blog for a few years now, it's where I learned how to do flash for weddings. His blog is such a great resource he could repackage it and sell it. I was glad to stumble across this podcast with Neil. Thanks so much!
