See a live demo of creative lighting solutions! Enthusiastic educator Rick Sammon shares his incredible ingenuity and shows us just how to put his tip "Get the darn flash off the camera!" into action. Catherine models once again, and Leo gets to play assistant. See how this Canon Explorer of Light answers the question "What can you do with just one light?"

Rick's Tips

  1. Take the darn flash off the camera.
  2. Lighting illuminates; shadows define.
  3. The closer you are to a subject, the more intimate the portrait becomes.
