This 3.5 hour class will have you using your speedlight like a pro, and if you are a pro, you’ll pick up a few pointers. We will teach you how to get the most out of your speedlight (hot shoe camera flash) by taking it off the camera. When you master off camera flash, your photographs won’t look “flashed”. You’ll have the skills necessary to produce beautifully lit images in a much wider range of environments.
Topics covered: We’ll use modifiers like shoot through panels for soft light, different kinds of umbrellas, soft boxes and reflectors. We’ll show you how you can use multiple speedlights to create truly professional studio and environmental portraits using modifiers you can make yourself. TTL metering, wireless flash, exposure compensation, and rear curtain sync will be discussed. We will also touch on more powerful self contained, off camera flash units like the Profoto B1 and B2. There will be a model for everyone to photograph, and PocketWizard triggering devices will be provided.
