Disable Flash

You know Flash? Haven’t thought about in a while, have you. For good reason! It’s less useful and less relevant than ever. It’s worth thinking about it one last time though — as you go to disable it in your web browser. Here’s how and why you should.

Flash Photography Is Fun Again With These Squishy Diffusers

If you shoot with an external flash, learning to control the light can be dreadful. Sometimes the best thing to do is buy a modifier for diffusing the light. Talk about a boring accessory to buy!

Here's A 5-Minute Look At The New 'Flash' TV Show

Video: There’s something excellent about superhero origin shows on TV.

Flash is the TV show based on the superhero of the same name, and the CW in the US put out this five minute teaser for it. Check it out!
