If you’re a Canon shooter, you better be heading over to Syl Arena’s new site and forum if you’ve always wondered about using flash with your Canon system (of course, other DSLR owners are welcome too).

There’s also a big How-to section which will be growing. There’s one interesting post which shares 15 tips for using your speedlite, including this gem below:

I know. You paid good money for your camera and your Speedlite. It’s not that you didn’t get the deluxe hotshoe. You did.

You cannot create interesting light when the main source of light is parked on top of your camera.

But if you’ve only got one light… don’t fret. Here’s one article for you too!
