Daffy,

I use the giga t pro remote release (http://www.hahnel.ie/index.cfm?page=dslrremotecontrols&pId=60) which works really well. Can set it either to use as a remote (same as pressing the shutter release) or to take a number of shots at any frequency you like (so one every 2 seconds for 50 shots). The latter is very useful as you can just set it going then go back to the fish and pick it up, turn it round etc. Not the cheapest option but very powerful. You can also use it for time lapse photos, star trails ad load of other photography uses.

Re fill flash there are loads of portrait photography blogs and examples out there. I use a phottix 5 in 1 reflector to help balance out harsh shadows (rather than a flash) which is also worth playing with. I find the flash can reflect too much of the fish (assuming the flash is on the camera) and being outdoors it's often pretty hard to bounce the flash.

Most of all keep snapping!

Matt

Canon 650D
Manual mode pop up the flash, and the flash dictates the exposure
In your quick menu, flash exposure + or - to adjust.
You may be able to save you flash settings in programme mode, not sure.

All well and good behind the camera, but hurried self takes I use automatic settings, then adjust at home.
Canon RC6 remote with rubber band attached to finger?

Search fill in flash then cameralabs

Just treated myself to a entire new camera kit, and wanted to pick the brains of you camera experts! This is for self take catch pictures.

I used to use the canon S5is, I would set up self timer, flip the screen round and then fire off 10 shots to get my pics.

I now have a Canon 60D with a 430 EXii flash, using a 50mm lens.

So my questions are these.

What would people recommend as a self take setup? I have seen the YONGNUO Wireless Remote Control mentioned on here. Would like to know what model to use and how best to use it?

I did try and use a infra red remote once before with my Canon G5 but really struggled to use it along with a handful of carp!

The second question is regarding fill in flash. Can anyone again tell me how to setup a fill in flash to use during the day with my setup?

Im guessing a lot of the DSLR Canons have similar features, so hopefully someone can help.

cheers.

A shot of the M25 , with a nice red sky .
would have been nicer if there was more brake lights to add a red streak , but there was a break in traffic !

Camera - Nikon D5100

Try Pixlr.com, most of what you need and it's free or PicMonkey mostly free. For something a tad more pro try GIMP, not that user friendly but does work

Any users of Picasa on here? Just need a tool for simple editing and correction. Would consider other recommendations and not adverse to spending a few quid if it will benefit me.
