I new to real estate photography and so confused about Speedlights. I need to figure out where to start with Speedlights. I see from some of the posts that Scott Hargis is referred to often when talking about lighting for real estate photography and I have watched his videos on one of the education sites. That and some YouTube videos is all I have for background right now.
Because they're so widely used by real estate photographers, the flash gear that I recommend is:
- The YN560 IV manual flash. You typically only need one or two of these when you are starting out.
- The YN560-TX flash trigger which works for Nikon, Canon, and Sony. It allows you to control the flash power remotely right at your camera.
- The Flashpoint R2 Pro Transmitter (Make sure you choose the right model for your camera)
- The Flashpoint Zoom LI-ION R2 TTL or Manual - This flash has a rechargeable lithium ion battery that will hold up to 650 full power pops on a single charge (Make sure you choose the right model for your camera)
This combination of flash gear will allow you to use Scott Hargis's manual lighting technique that he teaches in his e-book and video series.
