I will be photographing some families in my area’s homeschool group and would like some advice on some flashes or anything else for lighting.
(preferably under $100) All I have right now is the built in flash.
Yes, I definitely would recommend the yn-560 III as a cheap flash. I’ve had two eventually fail, but you can get them dirt cheap on ebay. Flash stands are not too expensive either. The best option however… shooting outside just before sunset, or after sunrise. Just make sure you have everything ready early. Soft shadows in portraits add artistic touch when used properly.
Thank you all for your input!
Yes, @jamesstaddon I bought the Altura Pro Series Digital SLR Universal Flash off amazon.com for $39.00 and it came with a soft box diffuser thing (I’m not sure what’s called) 🙂 I just got it so haven’t used it much but I really like it.
