Are you intimidated by your flash or confused about when and how to use to use it?
Do you want to eliminate shadows when using your flash?
Do you want to avoid “hot spots” when using your flash?
Or do you just want to get the most out of your flash unit?
If so, then this is the workshop for you!
In this class you will learn how to:
- control internal and external flashes,
- bounce flash,
- use light modifiers (reflectors, diffusers and more),
- use multiple wireless flash units,
- use TTL metering,
- use Flash Exposure Compensation (FEC),
- set custom functions for your flash,
- "drag your shutter",
- use your camera’s X-synch speed (and how to get around it),
- learn about Focal Plane / High speed sync, and
You will get hands-on experience using your flash and learn about several types of diffusers, a miniature softbox, a snoot, grids and other light modifiers made explicitly for external camera flashes. We will also use a wireless triggering system to fire off-camera flashes for various creative lighting effects.
Finally, you will learn the mysteries of manual flash so that you can match fill light to ambient light – which is the ultimate test of your ability to use a flash!
Bring your camera and external flash (if you have one), both manuals, fresh batteries for both, lens(es), and empty memory cards. External flashes are available for rent for most cameras for $10.00 for the session. Call 919.576.5331 after registering to reserve one.
