Low-Key photography is a great challenge for beginners and experienced photographers. Using a simple technique, you can create some drama to your everyday shots. You'll also likely to learn more about your camera's shutter speed and aperture than you ever will after years of shooting blindly. You'll also learn how to separate the darkness from the illumination. You won't be just shooting a photo. You'll be creating one!
In this event, you'll need a camera, a light source, and imagination.
1. Camera ( DSLR, Micro four thirds camera )
2. Light source. ( Flash, torch/flashlight or natural light )
3. Sync trigger for your flash unit if you have one.
Photographers are encouraged to get a flash unit of your own. Owning a DLSR camera is just your first step to good photography. A flash unit or strobe can enhance your skills many fold and you can consider it an investment. After all, you already spent a good chunk of cash on your camera and tripod. Your camera mounted flash is just for family parties.
All photographers will move in groups of 2 - 3 so you can help each other hold the light source while the other shoots. I'll bring 3 extra sets of sync triggers to loan out.
See ya there!
