Flash Photography Workshop
Become a strobist and take control of your flash
If you intend on shooting: Weddings, Fashion, Portraits, PR and Events, Live music and concerts, Low light conditions. For any of the above you will need to know how to use your speed light (Flash)
When most people purchase their first flash, the idea is that you can place the flash on the camera switch it on Auto and start shooting with all the auto computing technology in the flash and camera taking care of producing the perfectly exposed photos. However In reality you often get much the opposite with varying exposures and very shadowy photos.
This workshop has very little theory and loads of practical, we will teach you how to get started using your flash and you will walk away with not only understanding your flash but also the knowledge of being able to control your it, plus being able to create some great creative techniques.
