Are you confused or frustrated by your flash speedlight? Do you struggle with getting the right exposure or the right look when you’re using your speedlight? Come join us to learn the inner secrets of your flash speedlight and turn your fear of flash into a love of flash!

In Understanding your Flash Speedlight, you will learn how to take control of your flash speedlight and use it to add impact and intensity to your photographs. Whether you like shooting portraits, happy snaps or weddings, you’ll learn how to master your flash and use it creatively and effectively!

You’ll learn how to:

  • Use your flash in its e-TTL/i-TTL modes
  • Control flash exposure using flash exposure compensation
  • Use Front (first-curtain) vs Rear (second-curtain) flash
  • Activate and use high speed sync on your speedlight
  • Use your flash as key light and fill light
  • Implement bounce flash indoors and outdoors
  • Use reflectors
  • Use flash modifiers
  • Balance ambient and flash exposures for outdoor shooting

This workshop for photographers in Bunbury, Busselton and the South West includes your shooting with a model on location. If you’ve ever wanted to learn about using your flash effectively, then sign up for this workshop!

Note: You will need your own DSLR, lenses and speedlight flash (external flash). We recommend that you use in-brand speedlights with your camera (ie. not third party or off-market brands) to ensure that your flash can communicate with your DSLR. Your speedlight needs to have a flash head that can tilt and rotate.
