I was just asked by my company to take pictures of kids w/Autism playing with legos. They are paying for me to rent equipment and so I will be renting the 18-35 1.8 and possibly a flash. I have never used a flash and will have almost no time to use it at all to practice. Is it easy enough to just pop on for an event and shoot or am I just better off using ISO and working with what I know already?
Thanks for the help
Unfortunately, the only way to learn how to use flash illumination is to actually use it.
Fortunately, the simplest flash method, with a Canon EX-series flash mounted to a camera, the flash head pointed straight ahead and the camera in an automated mode such as Program AE is fairly easy.
Still, there's no substitute for experience in any form of photography. You may be in for a frustrating learning experience that may not be always successful.
