 Shadow Riders - Now I kinda wish I had photoshopped cowboy hat shadows for each of us! From family adventures in Saguaro National Park, Arizona
 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance. Captured with the GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 Lens #lumixloungegh3

    • We all started as beginners. I didn’t really see improvements until I started shooting everyday or close to everyday.

  1. I am relatively new to photography and recently got my first DSLR, a Cannon T4i. This video was helpful in understanding more about using a flash (thank you!) and am now thinking about getting one. With only a $30.00 difference in price what would be the pros and cons for getting either the 320 EX or the 430 EX II?

    • This is a great question. If you think you will use the LED video light go for the 320EX otherwise spend a bit more and get a more powerful flash with the 430EXII (buy from Amazon) Another way to look at it- if photographing small groups the 320 is fine, bigger groups and bigger rooms the 430EX is a better choice. Hope that helps.

  2. Thanks, Toby! Your answer was very helpful and the info that I was looking for. Sounds like spending just a bit more would give me a more powerful flash which would be more versatile in the long run. I plan on doing mostly photos but if I did find later on that I wanted to do more with video then I could always get the LED Light Panel. Thanks again!
