Today’s Canon flashes are amazing pieces of gear. They are really powerful and you can create stunning images with them, once you know how they all work together with your camera. You basically have a studio set up in your camera bag, and you can use multiple flashes to create stunning visuals. I use them all the time in both my wedding/portraits, as well as commercial work.
The Canon flash system gives you so many options, and learning what options work best in certain situations can really make your photographic life easy.
