Flash is a love-hate aspect of photography. Many photographers don't like the look adding flash bestows upon their images, but this might because they aren't quite using it correctly. While it's a complex topic, we've worked with the pros to compile a no-nonsense guide to high-end flash photography, from speedlights to strobes. Learn how to balance flash light with ambient light, all about modifiers and which ones to choose, creating special effects and adding a splash of colour with gels and continuous lights. If you aim to shoot events, weddings or portraits, you won't want to miss this!

Shoot backlit insects

Create a little sparkle in your nature images (Image credit: Future)

Insect photography is almost a genre of its own, with a set of unique skills required to get the most from your speedy subject. Even once you have a nice composition however, insect images can end up looking a little like record shots. For some extra depth and artistic input, try this technique from industry veteran Ross Hoddinott, (opens in new tab) who walks us through the shooting and editing steps for this core macro lighting trick. If you like exploring nature with a camera this one should definitely be on your list.
