In-Person Learning

If you feel confident with a camera but less so with a flash and would like to master external speed-light flash technology, this class is for you. The goal of this weekend-intensive, two-session class is to learn how to use a flash so well that the outcome looks like professional lighting utilizing TTL/SB flash units on and off-camera.

Students will work in various lighting situations, using the flash as both the main source of light and as a fill light. There will be lectures and demonstrations which include how to use a flash in both TTL and manual mode, on camera and off, how to determine exposure, how to control the light output of the flash, and how to diffuse the flash. Demonstrations using stands and umbrellas will be given showing bounce methods and multiple flash use. Students will be given assignments. This class is guaranteed to make you a master of your flash.

Please bring camera/lens, flash unit(s), manuals, memory cards, extra well CHARGED batteries (for camera and flash) and a jump drive (for transferring your images for critique). Please bring plenty of extra batteries for your flash units. (This class requires that you bring your own DSLR-camera/lens and speedlight-flash)

Optional but recommended: TTL-Off-Camera flash cord or wireless transmitters/receivers and speedlight bounce diffuser (Bounce Adapter that come with flash unit or such as Omni Bounce/ Vello diffusers) Questions? We will discuss equipment options to buy first day of class.
