Are you still learning how to use off-camera flash and need a few pointers? In the below video, Shutterbug's Scott Kelby shows you the best place to put your flash to shoot beautiful portraits with attractive lighting.

"The question I get asked a lot is how high do I put my flash? Where do I position it next to my subject?" Kelby says. "Does it go down low, does it go up high, does it go at eye level? Where is the right place to put the flash?"

In the short video below, Kelby will tell you exactly where you should position it, along with giving you some great tips on how to diffuse your flash to make the light less harsh and more flattering. Watch the quick tutorial and then go shoot some great portraits with off-camera flash today.
