I've had lots of requests to go over technique and to practice the techniques as a group. So let's give it a try. In this session, we'll go over how to modify the output of a flash to get better, more creative results.
You have a speedlight, you understand how it works, but you're wondering how you can make the light more interesting and more creative? In this session, we'll review the basics of using flash modifiers, such as diffusers, reflectors and umbrellas.
But instead of spending money on gear, can you achieve the look you want with some common household items?
This is a BEGINNER'S level meetup for people who are still learning about flash. Advanced people may want to look for a workshop with more advanced content.
Sports Basement has generously provided the meeting space and projector room, and has also offered a 10% discount for purchases made during our meetup. Please support Sports Basement for your sporting goods needs.
We will go through examples of using a flash with
• Bounce Flash
• Bounce Card
• Stofen diffuser
• Dome Diffuser
• How to use various common household items such as pieces of cardboard and plastic to soften the flash
Due to the limited amount of space that's available, we need to make sure that the reservations are kept open for people who will attend. That's why for this meetup, I'm asking for a $2 NONREFUNDABLE fee to RSVP. Please don't RSVP until you plan to attend.
For those who will be attending, please bring the following:
• Your camera
• A speedlight
• Pair of scissors
• Notepad & Pen
• It's helpful, but not necessary for this meetup, to get a hot shoe sync cord for your camera. A coiled 3 meter cord is a great length to start out with. The generic ones from eBay are inexpensive.
