Low-light or ambient-light conditions can present particular challenges to your photography, but there is a tool that can offer you another creative opportunity to add interest to your photographs. In this video, you will learn how to use front curtain sync and rear curtain sync to time the flash relative to the exposure length. Professional photographer Layne Kennedy demonstrates what happens when you trigger the flash at the start of a longer exposure, and what results from the flash occurring at the end of an exposure of the same length.
