Hi all, although I don't have a flash unit yet I've been trying to understand a bit about flash photography, seems as difficult to learn as photography itself . Sync speed, ttl, rear/front curtain, slave unit, hi speed, what does all this mean ?

There are some quick tips and definitions here.

The Lighting 101 tutorial from The Strobist is much longer and very thorough. The Strobist is all manual flash all the time but the lessons are applicable for TTL flash too.

The Tangents blog is all TTL flash all the time but it's a series or collection of blog posts. I suppose he wants you to buy one of his books.
