Action Photography with the Speedlite 600EX-RT Radio System

May 15, 2012

In this series of tutorials, Explorer of Light Tyler Stableford takes us to the legendary Snowmass Terrain Park in Snowmass, CO. where he utilizes the radio functionality of the 600EX-RT Speedlite system to achieve a perfect balance of ambient and Speedlite lighting, creating dynamic action photos and portraits in tricky shooting situations.

Tyler also shows how the use of cameras such as the EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III work seamlessly with the built in radio communication of the ST-E3-RT for complete control of all of the 600EX-RT Speedlites.

In Enhance Sunset and Dusk Light, see how the Speedlite system helps Tyler take advantage of the quickly-setting sun for a dramatic twilight action shot.

In Enhance Open Shade Light, watch Tyler carefully balance the more subtle qualities of shaded sunlight.

In Shooting in High Noon Sun, learn how he overpowers the harsh mid-day sun and even creates a starburst effect shooting directly into the sun with high apertures.

After watching these exciting episodes, check out some of Tyler's stunning final shots from the Snowmass shoot in the gallery.
