Photographers have a lot of misconceptions when it comes to flash, LEDs and modeling lights. So in today's video I am going to touch on what each of these things do and in general how you can use them. I will touch on Why you would use LED continuous lights or flash, types of flashes, Flash duration, how many watt seconds you need, LED brightness, why you would use a light meter and the inverse square law.
