Do you get confused or frustrated by your flash speedlight? Do you struggle with getting the right flash exposure or the right look when you’re using your speedlight? Come join us to uncover the secrets of your flash speedlight and turn your fear of flash into a love of flash!
Flash Fast Track will demystify flash photography for you. In this one-day workshop, you’ll 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 or want to get into creative off-camera flash (strobing), you’ll get a lot out of this workshop!
We start by giving you a solid understanding about the way your flash works, the bits and pieces attached to it and how you can drive your flash to get the right flash exposure. You’ll learn about balancing flash and ambient exposure, how to use bounce flash and bounce surfaces effectively, how to work flash exposures compensation and flash manual zoom, and how to get your flash working when shooting in full sun using high speed sync.
Then, we take the flash off-camera for some creative strobing. You’ll learn how to work your flash on its Manual mode: what the numbers (and fractions) mean, how to set up and use off-camera flash, and how to make use of lighting modifiers such as softboxes and umbrellas to shape the light from your flash.
Throughout the day, you’ll be learning and shooting in real world situations, working with our workshop model to build your understanding of flash lighting, location lighting and creative use of off-camera flash!
Our creativity intensifies in the afternoon, as we head out into Fremantle where you’ll learn how to use your flash outdoors — shooting to balance with ambient light, and to make use of flash with sun back lighting. We’ll then take the flash off camera and show you how you can create amazing images using off-camera flash.
This is the workshop that will fasttrack your understanding of your flash from zero to hero!
