    I registered, but it seems I can't watch anything for free! I think they've tricked me! Or is there a link I've missed?

    I've been watching it and it is great. I've taken other lessons from Mark on Pocket Wizards and he is a great teacher.....a little too much fluff this time but hey, it's three days!
    just call me Uma

    I guess I SHOULD remove the blinkie.
    BUT I'm not gonna!

    I have been watching all the Creative Live free broadcasts. What an amazing place to learn about photography. It starts at 11:00 Central Time. You need to start on the course catalog page, this weekend is the speedlite 101 and click on enroll. It's free. You can purchase the download this weekend on sale but you can watch it all weekend for free.

    I signed up too and watched part of the replay last night. He sure seems to know his stuff, but it is hard to follow at times and I am just never able to watch the whole thing! I am tempted to just pay for the dang thing so I can watch it when I have the time I didn't get any of day 2, is it worth it?

    I must have been too early. It is all working now. Thanks!
    I really want to get more comfortable with adjusting the % of flash from my on-camera and off-camera flashes. I specifically purchased the Canon 7D because it has a built-in trigger for communicating with the speedlite. I played with it once and that's it!!

    I've been stuck watching the "rewatch" all afternoon!! I'm afraid to leave the computer in case I miss something. It has been terrific. Thanks SO MUCH Alina for alerting me to the course!

    i very much liked the first day but still i have some questions on this.
    i don't own a speedlight but may want one in the future. there have also been tons of tipps on my pop-up flash.
    i must admit i didn't watch too much yesterday as i was scrapping most of the time and the stream was running at the same time.
    i tried some things on my camera in between the chats and this was awesome.
    so it really helped me to use my flash better.
