What is a flaker

A model who do not show up to the shoot or cancels.

How to spot them

How not to be one

SD Card Recovery

You have accidentally deleted a photo or wiped your card. 

Oh dear, how sad, never mind. 

Well not all is lost, these files may be able to be recovered. 

There is clever software out there that you can down load for free and this will recover your data.

If you have a full card and delete photos to make space, then fill the space with more images, then yes you would have lost your deleted images, but when you delete images it is the counter/index which is deleted, not the image so the image could be recovered.

High Speed Sync HSS

Most dslr cameras flash will sync up to a shutter speed at around 1/250th second. With HSS you can push this all the way to 1/800th.


When you are out doors in bright sunshine and you want fill flash and shallow depth of field.

When you've accidently left your on high ISO, so basically you can shoot on Av, e.g. you're at a wedding and you've just moved from inside the church to bright sunshine.


Less power as you go faster.
