4/28 Speedlight Shoot with Ari

For those of us interested in using speedlights to achieve the results we get from studio strobes, this is a workshop for you. Bring your own speedlight(s), triggers and/or light stands if you like (or, we will have plenty, so you don't need them), and learn to get professional shots with lower cost equipment.   It's always great to use your own equipment.

 Our model is Ari, and you can see some of her pictures from an earlier shoot at:


Give some thought about the difference shooting ETTL (TTL) or manual.  You might like to see this video where Joe Bradley and Rick Sammons argue these choices.

If you don't own radio triggers, remember that a great way to start is buying a TTL (ETTL) cable.  They come in 10 meter and 5 meter lengths.  If you later invest in radio triggers, then the cable is always a backup in you bag in case the radio triggers fail.  I've carried a cable for five years, and only used it once since buying Phottix radio triggers.

If you are in the market for triggers, the king is always the Pocket Wizard, but Phottix is a great (and much less expensive) alternative.  Cactus brand is even less expensive, but not quite as capable and a little more accident prone.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
