Dragging the Shutter: Balancing Flash and Ambient In-Studio and On-Location with Bobbi Lane & Lee Varis (In-Person Learning – Two Sessions)

Dragging the Shutter or balancing strobe and ambient light is tricky but the results can be amazing. We use the flash to illuminate the subject and slow the shutter speed (hence the term “dragging”) to pull in the background ambient light. Once you get the basic concept of how to set your flash and what camera settings to use, it’s easy and fun to experiment.
