Hi, my name is John Budden. I'm the owner of Shutter Priority Imaging Center. What we are going to talk about today is we're going to talk about how to make a camera flash. There is a couple different ways. What we are going to do is we're going to turn on the flash. Typically you'll find a button here. You push this up, you let the flash charge. When the flash has completed it's charge cycle you will see a confirmation of a squiggly line right here on your LCD display. Also you will find it inside your view finder on most cameras. Once it's charges up you point it at subject and fire. Everything is automatic. To use an external flash what you would do is you would place it on your Hachi as such. Then next what you would do is turn your flash on and you would wait for the flash to charge up. You will know it is charged up when you see the ready light turn on. At this point the camera is ready to take your picture with your flash. You would go ahead and release your camera at that point.
