"Where does a newbie start on this topic ?"


Windsor, GB
          

Hi Folks

I really want to understand flash and how I can use it to take great portraits of my children. I know nothing other than it always makes my pictures look over exposed and gives the kids red eye. Is there any good tutorials with examples on the internet that I can read ? I have a Nikon D70 and want to get the SB-800 flash but I would first like to understand a little more about how flash photograohy works.

Thanks for any help

Andy
