The Outdoor Portrait - (flash basics)

5:00 to 8:00 p.m.


Flash and Speedlite basics off and on camera.

Prerequisite - you must be comfortable shooting in the manual setting on your camera.  Please take our DSLR exposure basics class first.  This is a great second class!

If you've ever taken instruction from Peggy Farren, you know how she simplifies everything!  Learn basic lighting in this easy to understand class.  We will bring in a model so that you can practice what you've learned to seal the info into your brain!

We'll start at Understand Photography studio with about an hour and a half in the classroom and then venture over to the beach to practice with a real model up through sunset.  Please register as early as possible!
