  • You’ve heard that taking your flash off the hot shoe is the way to create better lit photographs. But how does it actually work? More importantly how do YOU make it work with your flash in your photography? If you joined this group to find out what all the hoopla of small flash lighting is about, this event is for you.

    In this flash intro class you will learn

    • what it means to take your flash off-camera and why you should always do it
    • how to fire the flash wirelessly with the strobe's built-in infrared trigger
    • the difference between infrared and radio triggers to fire your flash
    • a basic introduction to creating studio quality lighting with the use of light modifiers

    We will spend the better part of the class reviewing equipment and demonstrating techniques on both Nikon and Canon flashes.

    To get the most out of this class you should be familiar with the dials and buttons on your camera body. You should also know how to operate your camera in manual and aperture-priority modes. The better your understanding of the relation between f/stops and shutter speeds, the easier it will be for you to figure out the best exposure for your image.

    We will not be shooting during this class. That's what Part II is for - to start practicing the principles you just learned.
