Indoor Lighting with On-Camera and Off-Camera Flash Workshop

  • Apr 12, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Robert DiTommaso Photography Studio and Training Center

Bring your camera & flash and join Bob for this workshop to learn how to create interesting images with your camera flash.

Instruction will include on-camera and off-camera flash techniques.

This workshop will be designed around maximizing your EXTERNAL flash, NOT the built in flash that pops up from the top of your camera.  That little flash is not powerful enough for most of the techniques that we will be discussing.

If you don't own an external camera flash but are considering getting one, this would be a great opportunity to see what it can do for you.  I will have several Nikon flash units with me, I will try to get a canon flash, but I make no promises.

During this workshop I will demonstrate and give you to opportunity to experiment with the following:

A discussion of High Speed Sync, Rear Sync and Slow Sync.  What each one means and when you would want to use each.

Demonstration of why your flash has all those different bend and twist options, and why you want to learn to bounce off walls and other objects when possible.

Using various diffusion devices to "soften" an external flash mounted to your camera's hot shoe.

Using filters to color your flash to match the room light for better white balance.

Using filters for creative effect in the background.

Using your flash off-camera with the factory wireless control system.

Using your flash off-camera with a 3rd party wireless radio control system.

Placing your flash on a stand with an umbrella for studio quality light.

Placing your flash on a stand within a soft-box for studio quality light.

Come ready to learn and experiment and we'll play.

    I really enjoyed this class and the people in it. Bob is a thorough and patient instructor. Liked the ability to be"hands on" with some of his equipment.

    I really love this workshop. I spent way too many years clueless about flash photography. I am confident that I have hit upon a good means of explaining the various functionality that some much smarter engineer has built in to many of the modern flashes. Thanks to everyone for attending, and for the great interaction...it makes my job easier to get the feedback.

      Bob as we discussed, I'd like to see an advanced lighting workshop that provides a few hours for us to actually practice what we learned. If you are interested in hosting such a class, I'd jump on it. Thanks!
