Capture the Texture
Remote flash allows you to use the Speedlight off the camera and illuminate your subject from any direction. A remote flash unit requires no cables so it's easy to experiment with different lighting and it brings a whole new element to the enjoyment of photography.
One remote flash unit illuminates the dessert from the back to capture the texture of the food and tableware.
Use semitransparent plastic or tracing paper to soften the flash light. It makes your subject look more natural and real.
