* Do you love the great quality photography you see in magazines?
* Would you love to take that studio quality light with you?
* Would you love to have great light without all the equipment, hassle and cost?

Then you need to learn about lighting with small off-camera flashguns!

Most photographers describe themselves as available light photographers. Jim is an available light photographer too. He open his camera bag and there are six flashes available for him to work on.
Some photographers complain that flash gives a hard, just been blasted in the face, look. And that's true - when you use the tiny little pop up flash on your camera. But when you pop the light through a flashgun and then direct and colour and shape and soften the light, then the output is magical.
Jim can shoot good quality pictures in the dark, under low light and even when the sun is high in the sky. Using flash gives him complete control of light intensity, colour, direction and output. With two flashes he can make a model look beautifully flawless or he can make her look like a monster.
Flash equals total creative control.

And don't you, as an aspiring photographer, want total creative control?

Mr Jim Wilson is a full time journalist and photojournalist. He will be giving a demo on Sunday 21st March 2010 and if there is sufficient interest, a one to two day weekend workshop later in the year.

Join us on Sunday 21st March 2010 at 9 Springwood Height, Singapore[masked], Tel:[masked] to see a demo by Mr Jim Wilson, a journalist and photojournalist who has made it his mission to master off-camera flash.

PLEASE BE ON TIME AT 5.30 PM AS WE WILL BE WORKING AGAINST THE SUNSET WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE AT ABOUT 7:17 PM according to timeanddate.com.

NOTES:

THIS IS A DEMO - it is a pre-cursor to a one-day / two day weekend workshop that Jim hopes to run later in the year. The idea of the demo is that you can get a bit of an idea of what it's all about.

As this is a demo, it means that Jim won't be explaining exactly what he's doing, what gear he is using, nor answering in-depth questions. He simply won't have the time in time available plus we'll be working against the sunset and so we will be working fast. Explanations will be given - in depth - during the workshop if there is sufficient demand for one to be run.

Because this is just a demo - you will not need to bring your own camera unless you want to take pictures of the setups.

This workshop is for intermediate photographers. This also means that you must have a good understanding of basic photography. You should be OK if you thoroughly understand ISO, shutter speed and aperture. You should also be familiar with the concept of stopping up / stopping down (i.e. doubling or halving the light and how this is done).

Jim hopes to bring a model to this shoot, although it is not guaranteed.

At the end of the demo we will be having a pot luck dinner. Please contribute a dish for the event. The host will provide drinks and fruits. If you have any questions or clarification, send an email to [address removed] or call Peter at 96188893.
