Best Camera Settings for Studio Flash

Using flash as your only light source means that the colour and lighting effects are much more controllable and consistent than they are when using a natural light source such as sunlight. This means that you can confidently pre-set many of the settings on your camera.

Things you can pre-set

When you’re using studio flash as your only light source you have to use manual mode, as none of the automatic exposure modes will work with studio flash. Once you’ve selected manual mode you can also set the shutter speed to the fastest flash sync speed available on your camera.

Video Corner #13: How to Use Your Sekonic Light Meter

Today’s Video Corner is a little more advanced than some of the past videos, so if there are some terms or concepts that you’re unfamiliar with, feel free to ask about them in the forums. The video goes through how to use your light meter to determine the balance between your flash and ambient light (there are some great tips on using your flash as well). One of our earlier Video Corner episodes, How Camera Shutters Work, is also mentioned in the video, as is the excellent book “Understanding Exposure by Brian Peterson.”

It can sound a little odd that someone wants to buy an external flash when there is a flash already on the camera. So why would this be? The secret appeal to use an external flash is their flexibility in their use. They are highly versatile. You can use them with any camera. As opposed to a fixed position, the external flash is more adaptability. They can work with just about any dSLR.
