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.
