I have found that little stand handy for attaching a flash to a monopod to hold it up high. It will, of course, work on a tripod as well.

Found the stand in my lens bag! I'm more organized than I thought I was. It is now safely ensconced in the flash case with the flash!

With my external flash that I had and sold, it had a special shoe with the screw holes that went on the tripod..
I thought all of them came like that don't they?

I don't even have an external flash, but if I did, and could use it, I'd be excited, too! :-) Congrats!

Awesome!! That opens up a whole new world!

It's cool to learn new things. Figuring out the speedlites were harder for me than figuring out the camera, especially when trying to trigger off camera.

I am actually using my umbrella and stand for the first time since getting it over a year ago. It's fun to figure out new things and advance your knowledge.

Sounds like there are a number of options. Was going to try duct tape, but thought better of it.

You can always use a tripod as well.


How do you attach a flash to a tripod?

I got flashes and a transmitter for Christmas and haven't even had a chance to take them out of the boxes. Someday I may learn what you've learned.

That's a great start to bigger things.

I agree, that is very exciting!
I've learned a few tricks with my flash, too, but have only ever bothered to scratch the surface. I think it is more work to learn everything there is to know about a high-end flash, than about a DSLR camera. The manual for my flash is bigger, too, I think :-)

I you haven't been there, visit //strobist.blogspot.com and go through all of it. Start with Lighting 101.

Of COURSE it's exciting! Your world just got bigger! Congrats!
