Photographer Manny Ortiz utilizes off-camera flash for many of his portraits. For photographers new to flash and off-camera flash in particular, it can be daunting to try to get everything set up and working correctly to produce the desired results.

In only three minutes, you can learn how to set up an off-camera flash, utilize high-speed sync and be able to successfully use flash outdoors. High-speed sync allows you to use flash with your camera's fast shutter speeds. This can work very well when you want a shallow depth of field but still want to overpower the sun.
